Emily attended Lafayette College, studying psychology and economics before earning a Master of Education degree in Counseling and Guidance from Rutgers Graduate School of Education. After many years on the college side of the admissions process, Emily completed a certificate in Independent Educational Consulting through the University of California - Irvine and the Summer Training Institute through the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA).
