Emily Schwartz is VP of Organizing at NationBuilder. Emily got hooked on the political world as an undergraduate political science major at the University of San Diego although she planned on studying classical music. Her political repertoire includes stints at the US Senate Finance Committee, the 2008 Obama Campaign, and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Emily came to NationBuilder from the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. She earned a Masters of Science from the London School of Economics majoring in political economics and minoring in travel, international cuisine sampling and music festivals throughout her time in Europe.
A wanderer by nature, she never forgets her Kansas roots; enjoying quail and pheasant hunting and cheering on Jayhawks whenever possible — Rock Chalk!
