Raised in Brooklyn, the kale-eating capital of New York City, Emily is an outgoing and endearingly enthusiastic young woman who, for much of her childhood, danced around the living room singing “Tomorrow” from Annie.
Throughout her childhood, her love of musical theatre took her down the path of studying vocal performance at LaGuardia High School and pursuing a BA in Acting at Penn State University.
During her time at PSU, she explored many subjects and picked up minors in Entrepreneurship & Innovation (New Media Cluster) and French & Francophone Studies.
During summers and part-time through the years, she has interned/worked/collaborated with several start-ups such as ShuttleHome, Tribute, Daybreaker, Project 33, Gotham Media Ventures, and HeyMama.
Emily spent a year and a half as the Director of Events and Campus Outreach for Next Gen Summit (now NextGenHQ), the premier conference, and community for young entrepreneurs. There, she organized and executed events bringing together entrepreneurship communities around the US, worked on graphic and web design, and helped to expand the company.
Since graduating from Penn State, she has returned to Brooklyn where she works as the Marketing Manager at Troupe, a collaborative group trip-planning app.
In her free time, Emily is actively involved in the Brooklyn comedy scene producing, photographing, and performing in shows. She runs the Mom Jean Community for female and queer comics, runs Backyard Baseball open mic, and produces Comedy Late Night, a tipsy late-night bit show. She is also a member of Intrusive Thoughts, a queer improv troupe.
She also works as a freelance content creator, photographer, and event producer.
