After graduating from Waldorf College (Forest City, Iowa) with a BA in Business Management, Emma spent early years of her career in youth ministry, directing an overseas community service program. Emma traded youth ministry in exchange for financial industry when she returned back to school. She worked in the banking, then finance worlds as she pursued her Masters of Business Administration in international finance at the University of Saint Thomas (Minneapolis, MN). Before joining ADC, Emma was a financial advisor, and also worked in mutual funds operations at Ameriprise Financial. Emma is excited that at ADC, she is able to combine her financial industry experiences with her passion for community work.
