Founder, Director, Choreographer, and Manager

Emily founded "Inspiration" in December of 2009 and continues to direct and manage the group. She is actively involved in community theaters around the area as an actress, director, and stage manager. She is currently the Drama Specialist at Maplewood County Day Camp and Enrichment Center, instructor for Young Actors Academy in Woonsocket Rhode Island, and runs the drama club program at Cumberland Middle School and Mercymount Country Day School. Emily has set and achieved many goals for Inspiration over the years and continues to set more for the future. She hopes to someday pursue her dream of opening up her own performing arts studio.
