In honor of NWE's 4 year anniversary, we wanting to help you get to know us better! Meet Emily Tills, the NWE owner and Founder and lead RD!
When I was growing up, I wanted to be a singer. I was actually in a professional, local children’s choir for 4 years and got to sing in Disney World! I didn’t become interested in nutrition until I went through eating disorder treatment during 10th grade and fell in love with helping others
I was born, raised and still live in the suburbs of Syracuse, NY. My entire extended family lives within a 30 minute radius around the city and I love being able to see them at parties, tailgates and even babysit my cousin’s kids
I am NOT the first entrepreneur in my family, my paternal grandparents had a business in the square-dancing circuit in the ‘60-70’s selling square dancing paraphernalia. AND my maternal grandparents opened and owned 3 diners throughout central NY. They didn't have any restaurant experience when my grandfather convinced my grandma to open their first one in DeRuyter, NY and told her she would only need to help out around lunch time. As my grandma used to say... "lunch time turned out to be 5 am to 7 pm"!
I was trained in classical ballet until the age of 12 when I decided I wanted to play sports. I made the JV basketball team as a 7th grader who never actually played basketball before
I started NWE in December 2018 after feeling unfulfilled in my clinical job and have been able to help over 200+ women since change their food and nutrition
My boyfriend, Joe, and I have been together for 2.5 years and we met on Tinder. Our first date was actually 3 days before New York shut down everything for COVID. We went 2 months without seeing each other in person, having many Facetime dates and phone calls
My family has a dog, Mr. Magoo, who is 5 years old. For the longest time my parents said “absolutely not” to getting a dog, but we caught them at a weak moment and now they wouldn’t know what to do with themselves without Magoo.
I LOVE to travel. I went to 5 European countries on my high school senior trip, along with going to the Caribbean and Hawaii. My favorite island is St John in the USVI!
I am a newer Dave Matthews Band fan, Joe got me into their music and this summer we went to 4 shows and will be going to their shows at MSG next weekend
I wouldn’t want to have any other job in the world, I love NWE and the business I’ve built, along with the mission we serve. I wake up every morning feeling so blessed.
Let’s get to know each other better, what’s one fact about you?
