Emily Schaefer

Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator

Emily moved to Denver from an island off the coast of Maine. Growing up in a town surrounded by Acadia National Park, her love for the outdoors and wild spaces sparked early. After moving out to Colorado to finish a B.S. in Culinary Nutrition from Johnson & Wales University, she decided to stay, drawn to the diverse ecosystems and the culture of outdoor adventuring.

Before coming to VOC, Emily worked as the Communications Outreach Manager for Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership where she honed her graphic design, administrative, and outreach skills. She looks forward to growing in both professionalism and community with VOC , and is thankful for the backdrop of wild Colorado in which to do it in. In her free time, Emily is likely to be waist-deep in a board game, cooking up a storm, or hitting the trails.
