Emily Caroline Duff

Emily Duff is a sophomore nursing student from Memphis, Tennessee. At Lee, she is part of the Kairos Honors Program and the Nursing Christian Fellowship chapter, where she serves as vice president for recruitment. She is one of the School of Nursing dean’s fellows for her cohort, which involves attending meetings and representing her classmates in the discussion of department policies and decisions. “While many things have contributed to making my time at Lee super fun so far, the best part has definitely been my participation in Kairos,” said Emily. “The lifelong friends that I’ve made as well as the professors t hat I’ve developed relationships with are very important to me, and the academic rigor of the classes keeps me motivated and challenged.” After graduation, Emily plans to work as an ER or OR nurse in the Cleveland/Chattanooga area and eventually earn a master’s degree.
