When Emilee was five, her family moved from a big city to a 70-acre farm in rural Maine. This shaped her commitment to be active and to improve the community around her. “My family believes in giving back,” she stated.
Emilee demonstrated concern, responsibility, and courage by volunteering to babysit for low-income families. She entered homes of families she didn’t know, donated service that families could not afford to pay, and became a positive influence for the children she cared for. Also passionate about animals, Emilee donated her time to the Penobscot Valley Humane Society cleaning cages and caring for unwanted or abused pets.
