MEET THE TEAM
Emily was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. From an early age, she was fascinated with the relationship between scent and memory. She received a Business degree from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2013, and founded The Rustic House with her best friend Chelsea Cash that same year.
When she's not managing sales for TRH, Emily is most likely traveling the world or hanging out with friends. Despite the challenges of running a business, Emily is so thankful that she is able to turn her passion for candle making and human connection into a career.
Shortly after graduating from The University of Alabama at Birmingham with an Accounting degree, Chelsea got a phone call from Emily, urging her to move to Chattanooga. Chelsea agreed, and the two ladies started The Rustic House in 2013. Chelsea keeps all of the finances in line so TRH runs as smoothly as possible. She's not afraid of a challenge and loves to work with her hands.
When she's not working with TRH, Chelsea is hanging at the lake with friends or traveling. Fun fact: she has a yearly goal to visit at least one new state a year! She also loves watching Alabama football.
