With 10+ years in the event industry in Austin, Emily is known for her ability to understand the big picture and create engaging events. She works closely with her clients to produce an event that reflects clients goals flawlessly. Starting out in the music industry she has a unique understanding of talent management and registration. She has designed and produced events ranging from intimate weddings to large scale presenting sponsor activations at multi-day conferences.
