Dear Person Reading This,

I *heart* my Bitmoji. Not sure what that says about me, but I'll tell you what the brain and heart theme floating around the site is all about.

I feel at home in duality — Logic and Creative Writing were my two favorite classes in college. In the work world, it means being comfortable with nestling up to spreadsheets that have to be exact as much as with kicking ideas around with an art director. And around. And around.

But one more thing about that heart. An old boss of mine said the best thing about me is that I care. Actually, he used more colorful language that involves a four-letter word for poop — but anyway! — I'd have to agree. I really care. About the client, co-workers, the work itself, and getting it right. So there.

Love,
Emily

Emily's real good at writing headlines, TV spots, websites, presentation decks and statement stuffers. There are a lot of writers who aren't. In fact, that's exactly why I hired her.

4) Willing to jump in and lead anything from a photo shoot to part of a pitch
5) Grammar
6) Knows just about everyone and knows the perfect person to pull in on a project
7) Clients love her and love to work with her
8) Adorkable
9) Wildly creative and willing to dig for the right idea
