Emily Fenster is a third-year law student at the University of Oregon School of Law and a first year master’s student in the Community and Regional Planning Program.

Growing up on the Puget Sound, Emily learned to love the ocean, water (swimming), and wildlife from a young age. When she is not busy with school, Emily enjoys hiking, swimming, working out, spending time with friends, and pampering her pets, Lulu (a guinea pig) and Bella (a mastiff puppy).
