Emily For Mayor
A voice for all
Get to Know Emily
A graduate of the University of Central Florida (BA), Michigan State (MS), and Northwood University (MBA), Emily considers herself a lifelong learner and believes access to education is a critical component to self-growth and success. As a fellow of the Michigan Political Leadership Program, she learned about public policy and engaging with communities in a meaningful way and added her grassroots experience and approach to actively listen to Kentwood residents.
Emily’s managerial and active leadership experience has formed through her work in both the private and public sectors. Having served in operations management, sustainability, recycling, sales, and non-profit development capacities has contributed to her success in serving Kentwood residents.

My decision to run for mayor is a personal one.
I believe that decisions are not always black and white, and leadership requires more than balancing budgets and managing resources. Leadership is about leading the city with a vision while promoting empathy and kindness for all of us – including our New American and refugee neighbors. As your mayor, I will encourage our neighbors to get involved in city leadership roles to grow more equitable representation and build a stronger Kentwood together.”
