A Western New York native, Emilie spent time living in France, the United Kingdom, South Africa, and New York City before returning home to attend the University at Buffalo School of Law.  While in law school she visited New Zealand for a study abroad program and Argentina for an international legal internship placement. She served as a Publications Editor for the Buffalo Law Review and Managing Editor of the Buffalo Human Rights Law Review.
