Emily Straut

Emily began working at The Park in 2023, eager to reconnect with the adoption community. She is currently a student at MSU Denver, pursuing a BS in Environmental Science and plans to help mitigate the effects of climate change once she graduates.

Emily was adopted from Hunan, China and recently became interested in learning more about how to support adoptees’ wellness and sense of identity. Working at The Park has been an incredibly rewarding and enlightening experience and she hopes to stay involved once she graduates.

In her free time, Emily enjoys playing video games, practicing guitar, watching movies, and spending time with her friends and family. She recently checked off a major bucket list item off of her list – visiting China and her birth province of Hunan this past Spring with a CCAI Heritage Tour!
