Emily Harris came to Rappahannock County as a weekender in 2009 and quickly fell in love with everything the county has to offer. Prior to joining Cheri Woodard Realty, she worked in human resources and board governance in Washington DC, honing her customer service skills. Emily has experience working on a wide variety of projects in office organization, process-improvement, marketing and design, affording her a unique and valuable skill set for our agents and clients. In addition to her keeping the office running smoothly, she is also responsible for all advertising. She is involved with many community efforts with a focus on issues related to food, agriculture and the environment. When not working or volunteering, Emily enjoys hiking with her dog, Summer, listening to music, experimenting in the kitchen, and creating art in a variety of mediums.
I have always had deep love and reverence for plants and flowers. I love growing all sorts of herbs and flowers and have a happy strawberry patch. During winter my home turns into a jungle when all the tender plants come inside. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but my meyer lemon tree is top of the list-here's hoping the current crop of lemons ripen!
My dog Summer, a springer spaniel mix, is famous in Sperryville and all over Rappahannock! Everywhere we go people stop to say ‘hi’ to her. She knows where to find all the best treats. Summer comes to the office and loves meeting all the friends, customers and clients that stop in. She's also been to a few showings!
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.
