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. She enjoys hiking with her dog, listening to music, and experimenting in the kitchen. Everyone in the office agrees, she is an outstanding baker.
Always an avid gardener with a strong interest in healing and herbs, I decided to further my education with a monthly course at Rappahannock’s own Green Comfort School of Herbal Medicine. It been wonderful learning about the body’s systems and each magical herb can best help heal.
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.
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.
