Meet the team – Emily Priebe

March 02, 2022

Emily recently joined our team as our Business Optimization Manager. Her focus will be on identifying strategic priorities and developing ways to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of current firm-level processes.  She will oversee implementation of new business processes where there is value for the firm, and for our clients.

Prior to joining Priebe Wealth, Emily spent several years working for Fortune 500 companies in the retail and medical device industries.  Her roles within these companies were in product safety, and quality assurance with a focus on process development and process improvement. In 2018 she made the decision to become a stay-at-home mom while raising 3 young children but is now happy to be back in the office and joining the team at Priebe Wealth!

In her free time, Emily enjoys being active outside, giving back to non-profit organizations and spending time with her kids ranging from Hockey games with her boys, Griffin (12) and Tobin (6), to cooking and baking with her youngest daughter, Elsie (2), and weekends at the Cabin in the summertime.  

We asked Emily some more questions to get to know her below:

What is your dream travel destination?

I’m not a fan of flying, but I do enjoy visiting new locations.  I would love to do a month-long road-trip to visit national parks and find new places to hike!


What is one thing most people don’t know when they first meet you?

I grew up on a hobby farm in west central Minnesota and spent endless hours at my grandparent’s farm just down the road. I have some pretty great memories of riding in the tractor with my grandpa, chasing the pigs around the farmyard, and getting cute little baby chicks in the spring.


What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?

In the cold season you’ll find me at the hockey rink watching the boy’s play.  I’ve become what they call a “hockey mom”!  In the summer you’ll find me at the cabin enjoying the sun, water activities, and peacefulness of the cabin. 


If you could only eat one type of food forever, what would it be?

This is a hard question.  I love all food!  If I had to choose, I would say sushi.


What is your favorite sport to watch and what team do you root for?

STMA hockey.  Our oldest plays at the “PeeWee” level, and our middle plays at the “Mite” level.  We spend a lot of time watching and cheering for their teams. 


Now that you know a little bit more about Emily, keep an eye out for more Meet the Team’s in the future to get to know everyone in our office!
