A life-long Girl Scout, Emma loved to tell stories from her childhood of camping with her Girl Scout troop in the backyard and walking to the library to check out books.

She wanted every girl to have the same wonderful Girl Scout experiences she had.
Emma was dedicated to her family, church, and community. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Business Education from Southern University and taught at Acadiana High School in Lafayette.
