When asked about Emilie Nelson, Amanda, the founder of Future Female Leaders, shares “Emilie is such a joy to work with. We finally met in person this summer at a conference she was attending with FFL. The day before the conference, she came by to say hello and a few staff members and I were starting to set up the Future Female Leaders booth in the exhibit hall. There are many non-glamorous parts of getting ready for a conference that no one sees! Instead of saying a quick hello and leaving, she jumped in, volunteered, and stayed for hours to help us set up the booth. This really stuck with me. It’s easy to want to join in on the fun and exciting parts of a conference, but I always take notice of the people who volunteer to help with grunt work. I think that is a perfect example of what kind of person Emilie is.”
