About the Author

Emily Gould
Emily Gould studied hearing and speech pathology and psychology at the University of Utah. She has been writing for over twenty years. In 2016, she began writing various columns and covering local events for the Magna Times. A little over a year later, Emily became the editor and publisher of this local newspaper. Upon her daughter’s cancer diagnosis in September 2015, writing became less of a hobby and more of a coping mechanism that Emily used to understand and learn more about herself and the unfamiliar situations her family found themselves in. She took the opportunity to educate those who haven’t been afflicted with cancer about the details of this disease and to sympathize with those who have. She had found a way to unite the two worlds her family would now reside in. Author Residence: Magna, UT
