Emily Balog
  • Emily BalogPreschool Teaching Assistant

    I grew up in Los Angeles, California. I attended Hillsdale College where I majored in Spanish. While home I sometimes work as a production assistant which allows me to interact with a lot of very creative people which is always really fun and interesting. While in school I worked at a coffee shop and developed such a love for coffee that at this point I’d consider it a personality trait, for better or worse. I really love new experiences and meeting new people.
