Assigned to the position onboard the on Stardate

Physical Description:
Emilaina, or Emily as most of her friends call her, is a lithe, serene girl with kind eyes, a compelling smile, and wicked intelligence. She is of average height and build, and nothing about her tells you she'd be much help in a fight. She has long, wavy, black hair and the distinctive solid-black eyes of a half-Betazoid.

Family & Personal History:
Emilaina was born in Kentucky, where her family lived for most of her youth. They later moved to Iowa when Emilaina's Human grandfather died, and her mother inherited his farm, where they remain today.

Emilaina grew up on Earth with her Human mother, and her two half-Human, half-Betazoid sisters. She is the middle child, between older sister Averianna, and younger sister Torinessa. Through most of her childhood the three were inseperable, spared most of the usual sibling rivalries of youth by their empathic abilities.

She did not see much of her Betazoid father growing up, as he is an active Starfleet medical officer himself. When he made the rare appearance at her home on Earth, they would have grand family outings and "bonding experiences". There were times during her youth where she resented his absence, but she understood his choice.

Her mother does not have to work for them to survive, but she chose to become a groundskeeper at a local college. Emily never really understood the obsession with plants, especially considering her mother also oversees operations on the family farm, but to this day Emilaina finds herself caring for flowers to keep a part of her mother with her.

Her family is alive, and they are all close. She seldom gets to see them anymore, but she exchanges logs regularly with her elder sister who is a Starfleet engineer, and letters with her younger sister who is attending a non-Starfleet college. Emilaina also regularly sends her mother and younger sister on Earth souvenirs from space.

Educational History:
The Acacia sisters went to a public school for most of their childhood, but for high school, each of the girls chose to be homeschooled when their mother gave them the option. When she was 15, Emily visited a starbase to meet up with her father for a short visit. This time, though, she found herself staring out the window, drawn to space. She finally understood his decision to leave Earth.

For the next three years, she poured herself into medical studies. She learned everything she could about medicine, anatomy, and alien diseases. She kept up with her other studies, enough to pass the Starfleet Academy entrance exam. Her mother bought her practice exams, and she studied them dutifully. At 18, she enrolled in Starfleet Academy, on a direct medical track. At her father's urging, she took enough credits to become an officer and to be eligible for command positions, but she has always cared about medicine, and particularly her research, the most.

She is now both a Medical Doctor and a Doctor of Medical Research. She has a particular interest in alien bacteria, infectious disease, and particularly cross-species infections, and is almost always working on her research. She now occasionally gives lectures at Starfleet Medical, and her research is regarded highly for its potential. With her current post on the Atlantis, she also regularly sees patients now.

Medical History:
Emily is generally in perfect health. She inhereted from her father a strong sense of empathy, which has always been a difficult thing for her. Her interest in the sick and infectious diseases has often exposed her to negative emotions, which has caused her to struggle with her own mental health from time to time. It does give her some advantages as a medic, mostly in that her bedside manner is impeccable, but it doesn't come without its drawbacks.

Other than that, she could stand to exercise more, and to eat better. That said, couldn't we all?
