About Emma

Emma Kerr-Carpenter lives in the heart of Billings. During the past 3 legislative sessions she fought to fund public safety in Billings,  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, just welcomed their first son and are planning to raise him in Billings. She wants the Montana he grows up in to reflect the values that make this place home—neighbors helping neighbors.

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