Staff Spotlight- Emily Alley
After getting accepted to the Navy's officer commissioning program, Jeremy and I moved to Alabama in 2003 to attend Auburn University. I'd never been to the South before moving to Alabama, but those three years were truly some of the best of my life, and now we have a very special place in our hearts for Alabama as it's "home" to us. I graduated in December 2005 with my degree in Secondary Language Arts Education, and our perfectly timed son, Noah (7), was born two weeks later on New Year's Eve. Jeremy graduated with his degree in Chemical Engineering, and then we were off to Charleston for the next adventure.
We've been in Kingsland, Georgia for almost six years while Jeremy has been stationed on the USS Georgia and now as the tactics officer at Trident Training Facility. During our time here, we've had another son, Luke (16 months), and I taught at Camden County High School from 2008-2013. I swore I was leaving the profession to become a Christian Marriage and Family Therapist, but the door to Mosaica was opened to me before I left my job, and now here I am. Teaching is truly a passion of mine, and I was crazy to think I could live my life without doing so!
In just three weeks we are headed to Connecticut where Jeremy will be in a six month training program before becoming a department head officer on another submarine somewhere out there in the deep blue sea, which will mean another move in May! I'm so thankful to have found a job that allows for the flexibility I need in order to be home for my two boys while my husband is gone so much. I've been truly blessed, and I look forward to great things with Mosaica!
Thank you Emily for all that you do!
