Tanglewood Nature Center and Museum would like to present Emily Hofelich as their Nonprofit Professional in the Spotlight for the month of July. Emily works as the Manager of Community Relations and has held the position for the past six years.
When asked why she chose this particular profession, she responded, “I love my job. It is never the same day. I get to work with children, animals, wonderful volunteers and hike for a living. You can’t beat that! I truly believe that creating a future for our youth is imperative. We need to teach them to care for nature and themselves.”
One of the issues that Tanglewood currently faces is getting the word about their organization. The museum is free to the public and has over 9 miles of hiking trails that are open from dawn to dusk. It’s “a wonderful community resource” that Emily wishes “more people would take advantage” of all the great opportunities offered.
When not at work, Emily enjoys hiking, kayaking, glassblowing, hanging with friends as well as a love of travel. Though originally from Cleveland, OH, Emily currently resides in Corning, NY.
