Emily E. Schembra
Emily is an environmental studies and political science major who grew up in Southeast Missour-uh before moving to Missoula for school. She loves working at the Forest Service Fire Science Lab but is also passionate about water issues and environmental hazards mitigation. Emily completed an AmeriCorps term with a youth program, was a campus Senator, worked on social justice issues, and helped to create UM's Revolving Energy Loan Fund. She also studied termites in her youth. Hiking along gushing streams, cycling, cooking and keeping her hands dirty during Montana's odd growing season fill spare time.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
