Emily Solinger, Communications & Development Intern
Growing up in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, I fell in love with the South at a young age. After graduating from Vanderbilt and spending a few years in Washington DC, I am now thrilled to have a home in East Nashville with my husband. On most weekends I can be found at Barista Parlor for an almond milk latte or heading out to explore Shelby Park with our Goldendoodle, Tallulah.
