Emily Harris came to Rappahannock County as a weekender in 2009 and quickly fell in love with everything the county has to offer. Emily joined Cheri Woodard Realty in 2015, immediately putting her customer service, organization and marketing skills to good use. Multi-tasking and flexibility are her strengths helping her make the busy and ever changing office run smoothly for agents and clients. Emily is an active volunteer, especially with the local food pantry. She enjoys hiking with her dog, listening to music, and experimenting in the kitchen. Everyone in the office agrees, she is an outstanding baker.
Food Pantry Volunteer
I have volunteered with the active food pantry for Rappahannock county residents since 2014. I love cooking, sharing kitchen tips and meeting new people-making the pantry the perfect place for me. I love volunteering with other county residents and sharing my knowledge on preparing some of our locally grown produce and other unique ingredients.
When I moved to the country full time I starting helping county residents with social media, brainstorming big ideas, and other projects. Soon after, I realized I needed a title to sum up everything I was doing and came up with ‘creative consultant’ and added ‘for office – craft – food & wine – life’ to my business card figuring that would just about cover just about everything. While my role at CWR keeps me busy, I’m still able to take on a few projects. The coffee shop next door is the perfect place for meetings before I start work. You’ll also find me pouring wine in the tasting room at Gadino Cellars when time permits.
I am the unofficial baker of the group and often bring in freshly baked goods to share with everyone in the office. I love baking classics that honor my Swedish ancestry, but my greatest baking joy is when I tweak an old favorite into something fantastic! Sweet and savory, I like all types of baking and cooking, but chocolate is one of my basic food groups.sic food groups.
