Emily is a five-time Emmy-award winner, including statues for feature programs “Every 15 Minutes” and “Ahead of the Storm”, as well as “Outstanding Daily Newscast.” Having spent nearly ten years deciding what makes it into a newscast and what ends up on the cutting room floor, Emily knows how to get attention for businesses and organizations of all types.
Having also owned a small business with her husband, Chris, Emily understands the value of exposure for growing brands and the vital difference it can make in the success of the business.
Emily has two children, Lizzie and Grady, and a black Labrador named Kash.
She enjoys podcasts and a good glass of red wine – no matter what the season or food pairing – and binging on “Dateline” or “Parks and Recreation”. She is a member of the Children’s Museum Guild and sits on several boards including Saint Joe Indy and the Marion County Indianapolis Building Authority.
