As a fourth generation Manatee County native, Emma grew up visiting Mote regularly.

During her studies, Emma gained valuable experience through internships with Coastal Plains Institute and Manatee County Government’s Department of Natural Resources.

She joined the Mote family in 2023 as a Content Coordinator and works to help the Community Relations & Communications team generate content for Mote’s publications, aquarium exhibits, website and more.
