MEET THE JUNO JONES TEAM

Creating Space For Women in Nontraditional Fields

Manufacturing Process

Our mission is to create safe, beautiful footwear options for women by women, and in doing so to help normalize the idea of women in nontraditional fields. Studies have shown that women and girls often drop out of STEM education and jobs. Part of the reason for this is the feeling of not being seen, or of not fitting in. We believe that beauty and strength can go hand in hand, and by creating women’s work boots that fit well and look amazing, we hope women will feel seen, know they are the real deal, and understand that they belong and deserve the best. Juno Jones works with women-owned businesses and services whenever possible, and are partnered with nonprofit organizations like the National Association of Women in Construction, the National Society of Professional Surveyors, the Alliance of Women Directors, and Reinvented Magazine, to promote and empower women and girls in STEM and similar fields.

TEAM

Emily, Juno Jones CEO

EMILY

Founder & CEO

Emily has been on a mission to help women from the beginning of her career. While earning her BA in Women's Studies, she worked as a domestic violence victim advocate. During law school she served as Legal Intern at the National Organization for Women in DC, which solidified her passion for advocacy work. Following law school, Emily worked as a trial attorney with Legal Aid, helping women and children in family law and domestic violence cases. She went on to receive her Master's Degree in Broadcasting.

As a lifelong boot lover, Emily not only bought a lot of boots, but spent time hand-making and learning the craft of shoe-making in Cuernavaca, Mexico and the Brooklyn Shoe Space in New York.

In 2009, she and her husband Ryan took over a small truck and heavy equipment safety training firm, which she has helped grow into a national business. It was during her years there that she noticed the footwear problem—there wasn’t any! Determined to create safety boots that she’d actually want to wear, Emily assembled a powerhouse team of designers, consultants, and industry experts to bring Juno Jones to life.

Emily is a Task Force member of Women in Trucking, is on the Steering Committee for Empowering Women in Industry, is on the Board of Directors for the Philadelphia Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction, and is a Sustaining Member of the National Society of Professional Surveyors, among others.

Emily is also the host of the weekly Hazard Girls Podcast, helping to move the conversation forward on women’s issues in hazardous and male populated industries.
