A lifelong resident of Redlands, Emily feels a real connection to her hometown. She is honored to have had Eva and Elgar Burgeson and Jess Mercado as grandparents. She loves spending several hours a week with her 95-year-old grandmother, Sarah Mercado.
Married for 20 years to her husband, Sal Tejeda, Emily enjoys family time with their three adult children and is the proud grandmother to Anthony, age 10.
Emily serves as Chief Compliance Officer at KWB Wealth Managers Group, located in Redlands. KWB is a top industry-recognized financial investment firm in the nation. She has been with the firm since its inception in 1996.
Emily is very involved in planning and volunteering for the annual golf tournament benefiting the Semper Fi Fund. She has chosen to support the Semper Fi Fund because it provides immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 wounded, critically ill, and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. She also participates each year in the Believe Walk to raise money for breast cancer awareness and treatment.
Emily enjoys supporting and attending live theatre and music events in the Inland Empire.
Emily told us that, “2018 was the first time I attended the Gala. What a fun and exciting evening! I look forward to partnering up with a professional dancer and braving the ballroom dance floor for the very first time!”
