Emily Root is originally from a small town in central Kansas called Chase. In May 2018, she graduated from Missouri State University with her BS in General Business having an emphasis in Management. During school, she was a student leader with Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU) leading the women of CRU. She did an internship with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks in the Special Events department. Weirdly enough, she found out about Summit through an online Christian ministry directory. When she saw we had an opening in her field, she applied and got the job. In her spare time, she really enjoys kayaking, hiking, taking trips to the lake, and spending time with her family and friends.
