Emily is a member of the education team, working primarily on the National Assessment of Educational Progress project for the National Center for Education Statistics.
Prior to joining Hager Sharp, Emily led the communications strategy for an international cancer nonprofit, where she gained experience building innovative partnerships and translating complex ideas and data into accessible language for a variety of audiences.
When she’s not working on communications tasks, you’ll find her painting a masterpiece, reaching a new personal best in spin class, or playing with her adorable, yet mischievous, Pomeranian pup.
She also has a penchant for fonts (Rockwell is one of her personal favorites) and possesses the uncanny ability to identify them by sight.
A native Marylander, Emily grew up around a family of writers, PR professionals, and savvy copyeditors—so communications is in her DNA!
Emily holds a degree in public communication and Spanish from American University, where she also minored in graphic design.
A former middle school spelling bee champ, Emily has always loved words and writing. After a particularly heated regional competition in the 7th grade, she’ll also never forget how to spell “calliope.”
