Meet Emily

Meet the adventurous Emily, seasoned traveler and ModCloth’s Assistant to Marketing!

Name: Emily
Hometown: Bethel Park, PA
Pets: Two rescue dogs, Mia and Roxy
Worst fashion faux pas: Wearing multiple colors of eyeliner at once
I love: Any and all seafood โ€“ especially crab!

After chatting with Emily, I found myself searching travel sites to check out the cost of my new fantasy travel destinations. Emily’s enviable adventures abroad are enough to encourage anyone to travel, travel, travel! Before her junior year of college, Emily and three close friends traversed Europe. In the course of one month, the ambitious foursome backpacked through England, Croatia, Italy, Switzerland, France and Germany! They also managed to hang glide โ€“ yes, soar through the air at a ridiculously high altitude in what is essentially a giant kite โ€“ over the staggeringly beautiful Swiss Alps.

“One of the coolest parts is actually taking off, because you run down the hill and you keep running until your feet are no longer on the ground!” Emily says. “Once you are in the air it’s actually very relaxing, and a smooth ride, although I immediately asked the instructor to start doing tricks and crazy things โ€“ I wanted my experience to count!”

Emily’s awesome three week adventure solidified her desire to live abroad. After college graduation, Emily moved to Hastings, England where she worked as an administrative assistant. She took advantage of her free time by traveling to Holland, Spain, and Ireland, and playing soccer in Brighton, England.

Be sure to shop Emily’s employee picks which, like her traveling adventures, include a little bit of everything!
