Emily Long is an Event Coordinator, vocalist, and the co-owner and partner of Waverly Springs, a 13-acres property launching a Haute Cuisine restaurant in the spring of 2024 in the beautifully quaint town of Paeonian Springs, just north of Leesburg, VA. Future plans for the property include a Country Inn, Barn renovation for indoor events and festivals, and a Pool House renovation that will provide spa services as an amenity to our guests.
Emily and her husband, Gavin Long, have raised four girls together in the Northern Virginia area, moving to Great Falls in 2006. They met at University and married young anticipating a life in ministry. Emily is an accomplished vocalist and enjoys most genres, especially jazz. She has performed the National Anthem on many occasions, leads worship frequently at various churches and has performed for weddings, festivals and other professional events.
Her event coordinating came about naturally as a “gatherer”. She has orchestrated many festivals, weddings and other events requiring team management and a cool head for those ‘in the moment changes to plan’. Emily will gladly tell you she thrives in chaos and it is evident when she is running an event.
Emily is thrilled to be a part of the Loudoun Cares Board of Directors. She is thrilled to be joining this incredible team that is bringing so much life and help to those in our community most in need. Loudoun Cares’ ability to connect the various non-profits in our area, as well as, those who greatly desire to volunteer and give back to our community is truly changing lives.
