Emma Burchfield


As a member of the health team, Emma supports federal health agency clients. She is actively engaged in developing creative materials and social media content, implementing digital advertisements, monitoring media coverage, conducting stakeholder outreach, and managing projects across various contracts. Emma’s childhood dream of becoming a nurse, paired with her passion for public relations and social media, led her to a career in health communications at Hager Sharp.

Emma holds a BA in public relations and strategic communication with a minor in public health from American University. She draws upon experience working with federal agencies, private-sector companies, and nonprofit organizations. Her work has spanned across topics ranging from tobacco cessation and cardiovascular disease, to mixed martial arts and the latest “foodie” trends.

At Hager Sharp, Emma continues to merge her passion for communications with her desire to help others.

Outside of work, you can find Emma visiting local ice cream shops. She’s on a mission to find the best ice cream in DC. Any recs?
