DAUGHTER, SISTER, OWNER & FOUNDER OF THE CAVE MN
In 2020 an idea was formed between mother & daughters to create a space where everyone could feel beautiful inside and out. That idea transformed into reality and The Cave MN was born. Through lots of a love and hard work this little idea grew into something so much more. In 2021 Emily was diagnosed with a rare form of Sarcoma. Still one of her priorities was The Cave MN for she loved this place and the people within it. In September of 2023 Emily passed away peacefully surrounded by so much love.
Through Greta & Sophia, her mom and sister respectively, The Cave MN lives on in her honor.
