Emma was born and raised in Saint Paul, MN, and spent her childhood doing hands-on learning, creating endless craft projects, and playing outside. Post-high school, Emma began studying theater arts but quickly changed paths, ultimately completing a degree in sociology. Since graduation, she has worked as an independent framing carpenter, and believes that we all deserve comfortable, functional, and beautiful living spaces. At North House, Emma is excited to explore all aspects of craft (she is a firm believer in the lesser known second half of the "Jack of all trades" saying), soak up as much knowledge as possible, and begin honing her ability to teach.
