Meet Emily, our Photo Stylist. She’s an idealist, doodler and designer. She believes in grand romantic gestures and writing feelings down in pen. She has a heart for finding beauty in the mundane and a passion to create stories visually. She first found her love for all things creative in high school sharpie doodles and yearbook spreads. She graduated from SCAD with a degree in Branded Entertainment with a concentration in Film. Emily’s a Florida Orange turned Georgia Peach and the last 3 years she’s been learning how to adapt to Atlanta traffic and snow patterns. When she’s not in the office she’s capturing video of the things she loves, dreaming up a personal project or visiting her teenage angst through a throwback playlist.

Whether that includes managing partner accounts with the account team, attending networking events with the sales team or creating visually appealing content with the creative team, there is no holding back on my learning experience here. Our in-house creative team who focuses on photography, styling and video makes my ambassador experience even more unique. Coming from an alternate career background, I did not know the myriad elements of the creative strategy.
