Emily’s editorial career began when she moved to Dublin, Ireland, and joined a local nonprofit serving under-resourced schools in India and Kenya. From there she landed in southern Spain, handling the English content for a financial trading education website based in Gibraltar. After a few years abroad, she moved back to the U.S. and spent the next seven years as the associate editor of Fraud Magazine, where she edited content, coordinated print production, and wrote feature and cover articles for the 76-page bimonthly publication.
During her time at Fraud Magazine, Emily interviewed headline-makers like Theranos whistleblower Tyler Shultz; Matthew Caruana Galizia, son of murdered Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia; former Enron CFO and convicted fraudster Andrew Fastow; Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Bastian Obermayer (the reporter who received the Panama Papers); Arizona Veterans Affairs whistleblower Dr. Sam Foote; and the U.S. DEA agents behind the hit Netflix show Narcos.
Emily’s years of international experience continue to ignite her passion for delivering creative and thought-provoking content. As the writing manager at Dragonfly Editorial, she leads a team of talented and hardworking writing professionals.
Emily has a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Oklahoma, where she earned a spot in the Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society. She’s also a member of ACES: The Society for Editing, regularly speaking at conferences and delivering webcasts.
On a personal note, Emily is now in South Florida with her young son, husband, and two cats. She enjoys spending time in the pool and at the beach (when it’s not hurricane season), reading fantasy novels, and playing golf.
