Hailing from Anchorage, Alaska, Emma has lived in Oregon for a little over three years now. She graduated from Portland State University with Bachelor Degrees in Human Resources Management and Leadership and Management. Prior to coming to Motus, she mostly occupied roles in the HR/Administrative Services departments. In 2017, Monica recruited Emma and she turned out to be a very large part of Emma’s desire to work at Motus. Emma shares, “I have told Monica time and time again that part of my logic when determining to accept employment here was: if they can attract and retain a person like Monica, then this place must be good.” Emma loves that her job incorporates so many different elements and that she is able to spend every day interacting with people inside and outside of the organization.
Emma spent a good part of her childhood growing up in interesting and foreign places, like Egypt and Austria. Her family lived in Cairo, Egypt for five wonderful years! While other kids visited the Oregon trail and the Portland Art Museum, Emma’s field trips were to the Sphinx and Pyramids and her weekends consisted of camping in the desert and long strolls on camelback!
