HI, I'm Emily.



I'm a KC native with a love for design that facilitates personal, emotional, and historical connections (see my senior thesis to read about my favorite — and most exhausting — project combining all three). Currently, I'm working at VMLY&R's global headquarters as a Designer on our business development team, where I focus on print, presentation, and layout design for pitch processes.

In 2017, I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a BFA in Communication Design from the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, and a minor in psychology. During my time there, I focused on finding strong leadership roles that allowed me to apply design to causes I cared about. I helped found and served for three years as Director of Public Relations of OWN IT WashU, a women's leadership summit designed to connect students with successful and empowering female role models. I hope to continue to find creative leadership roles and meaningful projects that allow me to connect with important causes in my community.
