Emily Wallace

Owner / Branch Manager Des Moines / Sales Manager

Emily likes moving so much that she decided to enter the world almost two months earlier than her mother planned. After a couple weeks out of the womb she left the hospital (legend has it) at a sprint, and she never stopped running from there. She kept her feet moving across the globe, working as a public affairs specialist for the U.S. Army Reserve in Joint Base Balad, Iraq; a journalism degree as a Hawkeye; a page designer for the Des Moines Register; a backpacker in South America; and has booked 2,000 moves for the Spine in her four years with the company. All that running finally paid off when she recently qualified for the Boston Marathon. She even picked up a fellow Spiner (Cliff Wallace) for a husband. Together, Emily and Cliff started Spine’s first successful branch in Des Moines, and in the course of a year they've brought it from a single truck to a fleet of eight trucks by its second summer. She loves the seasonal nature of the job (work hard, play hard), which allows the Spine duo to take long trips like their six-week, 5,000-mile honeymoon through the Rockies up to Banff, Canada.

In attempt to further reduce our environmental impact, we've implemented a carbon off-set program to give you the opportunity to purchase carbon offsets to reduce the environmental impact of your move.

Our Green-Initiative

As an eco-friendly moving company, we believe owning and running a business brings with it the responsibility to do right by our coworkers, our customers, our neighbors, and the environment.

Long-Distance Moves

We may be Iowa City - born, raised, and based, but long distance moves are our bread and butter. That hometown feel is what makes moving long distance with us so great - it's the comfort of moving with friends.
