Emilie manages the Discord Developers (DDevs) community, the second-largest community server owned by Discord. Working closely with developer advocates and software engineers, they deliver events and other activations to engage with the developer community, and ensure it remains a safe and valuable corner of the Internet.

They are also an adjunct professor at North Seattle College (Seattle, WA). They previously taught for Foothill College (Los Altos Hills, CA). At UC Santa Barbara, she was a lead teaching assistant and summer instructor for the introductory computer science course. They have also hosted a high school Summer Immersion Program based at Amazon Lab126 (Sunnyvale, CA) with Girls Who Code.

In her past program management role with the Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS Program, Emilie supported high schools across the Pacific Northwest develop equitable and inclusive computer science pathways. They recruited and managed relationships with technical volunteers, managed and scaled relationships with high schools and other stakeholders, and organized and hosted training sessions and other events.

As Emilie was a first-generation college student and identifies as a queer, non-binary woman in computer science, they understand the importance and urgency of addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion within the field. With their background, they relate to many who are just starting to learn to code, and strive to set an example for future computer scientists.
