Emily Gericke, B.S. Neuroscience
A former CHESS student, Emily loved learning so much she decided to study the brain. While at the College of William & Mary, Emily discovered a love for neuroscience and research, and
a curiosity for understanding how people learn, change, and act. Upon graduating in 2018, Emily was awarded the Excellence in Neuroscience award by the faculty for her senior thesis work. She now finds herself leveraging her knowledge of human quirkiness and knack for business as a consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton. She lives with her husband in Washington D.C. in a cute little apartment where they watch lots of Hallmark movies and stay up way too late dreaming up business ideas and discussing theology almost every night.
