Hi! My name is Emily Robertshaw and I am a Validation Officer and Team Lead on Grant Services. My role is to oversee a team of reviewers who perform Expenditure Responsibility and assist our charity partners in completing their Grant Eligibility Application.
Before this role I completed my B.A. at James Madison University. My studies focused on research, social justice, and communications within the arts. During my time I found what I was most passionate about was mission driven work. I then re-focused my career to nonprofit work and the philanthropic industry.
In my personal life, my main passion is travel and food! I am currently trying to visit 30 countries before I turn 30, I have 9 to go! I am also attempting every recipe in Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” I believe the best way to experience culture is through food!
