Emily Kil is the co-owner of Eco Bear Biohazard Cleaning Company – a company that provides biohazard, unattended death, suicide, crime scene, and homeless encampment cleaning services in Southern California. They work with families very shortly after they learn of a loved ones passing. She operates the business with her husband Raymond Magno, a veteran of the Coast Guard and commercial Alaskan salmon fisherman.  They met while she was on vacation in Alaska and have been together ever since.  They now live in Los Angeles along with their baby boy and two dogs. Emily joined Open to Hope to share the stories of the people we meet through this business.
