About Emma

Emma Kerr-Carpenter lives in the heart of House District 49. During the 2019 legislative session she fought to defend healthcare for all Montanans, protect the environment, and strengthen public education. She’s actively involved in her faith community, Billings First Congregational Church, and serves on the board of Northern Plains Resource Council where she chairs the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. She has spent her career working with youth and their families to overcome poverty, trauma, and crisis.

Emma and her husband, Dan, are planning to raise their kids in Billings. She wants the Montana they grow up in to reflect the values that make this place home—neighbors helping neighbors. 


When she is not working, Emma can be found hiking or in her kitchen crafting (and eating) delicious food.
