Emily Moody grew up in a small town in South Dakota with one stoplight and no public art. One of the only Bs she got in high school was in art class. Therefore, she decided to pursue a career in the sciences at the University of South Dakota and, after changing majors 5 times, settled on Psychology/Criminal Justice and earned a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy. She was already positioning to be an Executive Director of an arts non-profit. But first she practiced Physical Therapy for 15 years primarily making house calls to the elderly and, most recently, as an Ergonomic Specialist at Mutual of Omaha where she educated folks that sitting at their desks all day was killing them. Emily loves music (from Bach to The Faint) and attending local art shows (mostly for the wine in those tiny plastic cups). She lives in the best neighborhood in Omaha with her wonderful husband, Craig, and two sweet daughters, Lydia and Janie.
