Emily left the Park Slope abode during the COVID-19 pandemic to move in with her parents in 2020 and has been able to work remotely ever since.

“Moving back in with my parents in my 30s was quite an experiment,” the senior manager for the National Audubon Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to conservation of birds and their habitats, told The Post last year. “It’s been a lot of fun. We are big animal people. Between us, there are three cats, four dogs, some chickens and a couple of old horses.”

She added, “Being able to spend quality time and to just hang out and do things like watch ‘The Bachelor’ together has been great.”
