“It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.”

Scott Belsky

Whether it’s a trip itinerary, a design project, or a strategic plan, once Emily sets her mind to something, she makes it happen. Emily creatively ensures that a project’s vision and intricate details are fully captured and thoughtfully executed.

Emily thrives in a problem-solving environment, tailoring solutions to each unique client situation. She’s a champion for her clients, and prides herself on building strong and lasting partnerships. Emily’s consulting niche is taking big-picture concepts from lofty to operational, always driving toward a solution.

During her tenure supporting clients in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), Emily concentrated on strategy development and execution. She conducted root-cause analyses to evaluate DoD-wide systemic inefficiencies and made sure individual initiatives reached successful implementation.
