Emily was born and raised in the central valley of California in a small town called Kingsburg. After years of moving around the state, Emily and her husband have decided to settle down with their pup, Rocket, in the city of Ventura. Emily has always been fascinated by real estate and home design. At a young age, she knew that real estate was a dream of hers. She previously worked in Healthcare for 3 years as a Health Information Management Technician, where she was able to help people in their time of need. While she was successful in the healthcare industry, she realized it was time to pursue her own dreams. She was wary to leave the kind and familiar nature of healthcare to come into a world that she knew little about. But, after learning about Team Szakos’ mission, vision and goals, she knew this was a place she would be proud to work at! Emily’s creative and organized nature makes her a great marketing and administrative assistant. She joined Team Szakos because of their willingness to serve and better the community of Ventura. She believes Team Szakos will make a positive impact on all home buyers in Ventura, and she is thrilled to be a part of it.
