Emily Wooten

As a Galveston, TX B.O.I., Emily has spent her life roaming and learning about the Gulf Coast habitats with her dad and wildlife photographer/biologist, Ron Wooten. As time passed, a deep love and admiration grew for Galveston habitats and all the creatures that reside there. To tie together her passions of nature, cultures, and the arts, Emily attended Texas A&M University at Galveston where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Marine and Environmental Law & Policy, double minoring in English and Anthropology.

Upon graduation, she taught that same love and admiration for three years at a small Montessori school in Galveston. With her mother’s love for self-less service shaping her life, Emily gained experience in the non-profit world through volunteering and work experiences at the local humane society, social service non-profits, participating in beach clean-ups, and doing mission work around the world. She plans to dedicate her life to inspiring others to love, cherish, and nurture all living things.

In Emily’s spare time she enjoys acrylic and watercolor painting, fostering kittens, exploring Texas State Parks, traveling, hanging out with her family and friends, loving on her cats, Olive and Luna, and dog Ranger, eating up sunshine on a summer beach day, surfing, SUP boarding, sipping a cup of coffee in her backyard, and trying to find joy in the little things.
