Emili Combest

Mother of a child with CF

Emili grew up in rural, central Pennsylvania and attended the U.S. Air Force Academy, where she met her best friend and husband, Ryan. They were stationed in Virginia and then Italy -- the country flowing with wine and pasta. They loved adventuring all over Europe before their best and biggest adventure arrived, their daughter, Eden. Emili has a bachelor's degree in biology and a master's degree in professional counseling. She loves working with young children, running, reading, and playing with her chocolate lab, Charlie Brown.
