I was always impressed by Emily’s professionalism, her quick understanding of clients’ needs, and her ability to handle complex issues and quickly turn complicated material into plain language. She is smart, creative, detail-oriented and a highly collaborative relationship-builder. Everyone, including me, loves working with Emily. I would recommend her for any content or communications project.
