Bio:

As IDEA and HR Director, Emérita (Emmy) leverages their strengths of strategy, ideation, and assessment to be an active voice for implementing policy and systemic interventions that support increased racial equity. She is committed to supporting all members of the Merit community in their personal and professional antiracist goals and conducting more conventional HR duties through an intersectional lens.

FAVORITE MUSICIAN:

As an elder emo kid, I love Lacuna Coil, Chelsea Wolfe, Ice Nine Kills, Type O Negative but was raised on Michael Jackson, 2000s raggaeton and bachata for the ole razzle dazzle. My favorite song, however, is “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas.
