About Emma Yanke

Hello, all! My name is Emma Yanke and I am very excited as well as humbled to be presented with this amazing opportunity to join the Blossom IDD Board.   

I wanted to provide you with some information about me. First off, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in May of 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Organizational and Professional Communication Studies. Following graduation, I worked at Acuity Insurance as an HR Specialist for 2.5 years. Following that experience, I started my new role with Delta Defense in January of 2022 as an HR Business Partner. 

I am originally from the Belgium, Wisconsin area but have been living in Cedarburg for the last year and a half. My boyfriend, Sean and I, have recently bought a house in West Bend and will be moving there on April 1st! 

A few fun facts about me is that I am a retired police officer’s daughter. Also, my parents and I attend many Packers games since we recently received season tickets after being on the list for 20+ years. To add, while attending school I studied abroad in Galway, Ireland and a goal of mine is that I am hoping to travel to Germany within the next few years.
