Emma Valdivieso

Emma was born and raised on the beautiful coast of Central California. She studied at California Polytechnic State University in SLO where she received her BA in English and minored in Accounting. Her goal was to become a teacher but was quickly placed in a bookkeeping position where she found the culture of numbers much more fascinating. Emma came to BES in December of 2009 where she started out as scheduler and editor, working her way through the whole process of the mystery shopping business, to eventually become the Accounting Manager. In her free time Emma loves to help her community through several charities. She is the President of the Five Cities Dog Park Association, volunteers for a Feral Feline Program, is on the planning committee for the Annual Pismo Beach Turkey Trot whose proceeds fund the SLO County Food Bank, and finally is the CEO of SLO County Golden Retrievers, a non-profit 501c3. Much of her charity work is done with a very understanding husband and three Golden Retrievers in tow. When she has a moment to herself, she shares it with her horse.
