Emily Schutz

Emily is originally from South Florida, born and raised in West Palm Beach. She loves her hometown and was very involved in the community growing up, partaking in many opportunities to sing and entertain. She performed in many competitions and even sang during the 7th inning stretch at Roger Dean Stadium on the fourth of July. After 18 years of living along the coast, she moved to Tallahassee, FL where she attends Florida State University and is currently pursuing a double major in English and Communication Media Studies. In her free time, she enjoys taking her dog to the park and tracking down the best coffee in Tallahassee. 

Despite the drastic move, she has grown to love the state's capital for its beautiful nature trails and variety of coffee shops, although she does enjoy exploring other areas as well. Over the last few years, Emily has done quite a bit of sightseeing here in Florida, visiting beautiful and dynamic locations such as Destin, Sanibel Island, Amelia Island, Jacksonville, Gainesville, Orlando, the Keys, and so on. Exploring her home state is a true joy for her and she loves to try coffee and incredible food everywhere she goes. Be on the lookout for her top picks for food and coffee not only in Tallahassee but in other Florida cities as well. 

Emily has lived in her fair share of pet-friendly apartments and enjoys making her space comfortable for not only herself but her miniature schnauzer as well. She does this by ensuring that there are plenty of cozy blankets to go around between the two of them, as well as wonderful furnishings and scents. Green areas near the unit, are another important thing that she looks out for when apartment hunting. She has been lucky to live in apartment communities that are great for people and pets alike.
