Emily was born in the SW suburbs of Chicago and married into Grand Rapids in 1998 when she and Rolf Smith tied the knot. Emily and Rolf have 2 children, Hannah and Rylan, and a third child/dog, Phoenix. Ready for something new and as a demonstration of faith, Emily established Adored in 2016 after 18 years working as a Registered Nurse and medical administrator. Emily is joyfully blessed by this opportunity to serve women internationally and in the Grand Rapids community. She hopes every woman who enters the doors of Adored experiences the same kind of joy.
