Growing up in the Treasure Valley, Emily found herself venturing away from home to earn a BFA in broadcast journalism and theater, but eventually found herself back in Boise. After graduation, she found a position with KIFI as a Local News 8 reporter and anchor in Idaho Falls.
Emily’s love for Boise made her want to become an active member in the business community to pursue a leadership role or management position. Her first step was to earn her MBA to expand her business skills and round out her experience.
Emily currently works full time at Better Business Bureaus (BBB) while enrolled in the Career Track MBA Program at COBE. “It’s all about trying to find that balance – whether it’s work, school, friends, hobbies, successful students have a well-balanced life “, advises Valla. Emily will be graduating the Career Track MBA program in May and will continue to work at BBB.
