Emily is a journalist who's knowledgeable about various things, including Victorian mansions. She travels a lot too and loves to help Nancy. She once took a tour of Egypt on the GBA version she had an assignment there, and was quite bad at riding a camel.
Message in a Haunted Mansion
While Nancy is staying with Rose Green, in her Victorian Mansion, Emily's editor has just given her an assignment on "The Dragons of San Francisco", Nancy figures Emily would be quite helpful when staying in such a historical house, so she calls her up and asks questions about various things, she turns out to be quite helpful with old sayings and names, like "Gum Bo Fu" and "Yerba Buena Town".
