Emily Jayne Wilson was born in Massachusetts and grew up in upstate New York. Her passion for helping children inspired her to obtain her Associates Degree in Child Development from Southern Vermont College and also her Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from UConn. Emily remains committed to being a part of her Connecticut community stating, “I truly believe it takes a village to raise a family.” She is grateful for the support she receives, while also offering any of her own resources to help others in the process of raising her own six children.
Beyond her passion for serving others, Emily is focused on balancing the job of being a mother of six along with her husband Jimmy. In addition to attending her kids’ dance recitals, volleyball matches, basketball and soccer games, and chasing her "littles" around the yard. Health and wellness are also very important to Emily.
After many years of teaching preschool, nannying, and working in retail as a sales consultant and stylist, Emily pursued a new career as a mortgage professional combining her desire for helping families succeed with her love of real estate. She enters every relationship as an active listener, allowing her the ability to hear and assess the entire picture.
