As an adjunct professor at St. Joseph’s Seminary / Dunwoodie in Yonkers, NY, Emily lectures on Beauty and the New Evangelization. Her passion for ecclesiastical architecture was sparked by an intensive program of study of Medieval and Renaissance art, architecture, and religious studies.
Emily holds a BA in History of Art from Rhodes College, Memphis, TN; an MA/MSc in History of Art from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland; and is currently pursuing a MA in Theology, St. Joseph’s College; Standish ME.
Emily is a member of the New York Landmarks Conservancy, Conference for Catholic Facility Management, Partners for Sacred Places, and Pax Christi Downtown Brooklyn.
