More on Emily
What do you love? What do you enjoy?
I love spending time with my family! They are my biggest supporters and have had a huge role in shaping me into the person that I am today. We are a tight-knit group and always have the best of times together. I am an only child, so my dog, Parker, is like my sister. We treat her like a family member, and, therefore, she celebrates every holiday with us! She has a stocking at Christmas, an Easter basket and dresses up for Halloween each year.
What is your guilty pleasure TV show?
I am absolutely obsessed with all things Bravo! I think that Andy Cohen is a genius for creating the Real Housewives franchise! The Real Housewives of New York City is my favorite, because of how fiery and straightforward the women are.
What are you most passionate about professionally?
I am most passionate about producing the best work possible! I am a bit of a perfectionist and will continue to work and tweak things until I achieve the desired result. I strive to do this each and every time I work on an assignment. My mom instilled this in me from the time I was little by saying, “If you are going to do something, do it with everything that you have.” I am excited to be able to bring this work ethic to Moxie!
