Hear Me Roar
Emily Ellison is a self-confessed workaholic, who admits she needs to spend more time participating in her favorite pastimes, nearly all of which are outdoors: gardening, hiking, biking, golfing, and kayaking. Happiest on long walks through forests and countrysides, Emily is a perfect fit with her job title: St. Simons Land Trust Development and Communications Director.
Emily, what is your life’s motto?
Make each corner of the world a little better than the way you found it. It’s something my parents did unconsciously. They transformed landscapes, planted gardens, rescued old houses, and improved communities. As a family we camped and hiked along stony creeks, loved the smell of earth and forest. It’s in my blood. If through my role at the Land Trust I can help in some small way to protect this island, I’m fulfilled.
