THE BIO that's not in the program

Emily Marso likes kittens, and tea, and lightsabers. She grew up in a town with 2,000 people, and her high school mascot was a potato (Go Spuds!). She's currently learning to play golf and violin, and though both are in their frustrating early stages, they bring her much joy. She thinks a lot about what it means to be "ethnically ambiguous." She also thinks a lot about how many Junior Mints is too many. She can tell you at least one obscure fact about every U.S. President. She's endlessly curious.
She loves what she does.
