Emily Zangari

North Dakota transplant, but a lover of all things New England. Adopted into the Husky family after years in professional hockey social. When I’m not glued to my phone, you can find me watching football (#Skol!), hiking with my pup, or on the hunt for the best Mexican food on the east coast.
