Emily Hillerman - HeadCount

Emily had her first festival experience at Caribbean Holidaze 2007, and it was the friendships she made in Jamaica that led her to start volunteering with Headcount in April 2008. She grew up in a rural Missouri town, about an hour outside of St. Louis, where she still has to take unpaved roads to get to her family’s farm She graduated from Truman State University in 2006 with degrees in English, Philosophy, and Religion, and a minor in Psychology. She moved to Denver in September 2006 for a job with FlightSafety Services Corp, where she is currently contracted by the Navy to develop training courseware for the T-6. Emily loves any outdoor activity, and it is her passion for travel that drives her to take at least two international trips a year.
