Q & A

What are you most proud of in your career?
I am most proud of the manager I have become. I love working through feedback with someone, helping my direct reports set and achieve their goals, and supporting those around me as a cheerleader and advocate. 

Name one thing most people don’t know about you.
Emily is a family name, and I’m actually the fifth!

How would your mother describe you?
A joint response from both parents: “Em is an indomitable source of positive energy and fun.”

What are your greatest strengths as a communications practitioner?
I am enthusiastic, responsive and a problem-solving partner.

What is your favorite food?
Pizza – and I’m happy to pitch you on why this is the perfect answer.

Describe your perfect client.
I always say that the Prosek team brings their best self to work to deliver the best results every day, and I love a client that does the same. My perfect client is direct and collaborative. We should be able to give it to each other straight and work together to achieve results, while celebrating the wins along the way.

What three hobbies or activities do you enjoy most?
My best friend and I try to go to The New York Times’ top 10 new restaurants in NY each year. Our favorite year so far was probably 2017, the year of the Scandinavian tasting menu.

I also volunteer with PAWS NY, an organization that helps the elderly keep their pets at home with weekly dog walking. I am running the NYC Marathon on behalf of PAWS, so I should (begrudgingly) add marathon training in Central Park as a hobby too.  

And lastly, I love a Sunday on the couch with the NY Giants and / or F1 (go Lewis!).

What’s your favorite part of the workday?
I am definitely an early bird, and I enjoy getting through the news and cranking something out before the emails start coming in.

I also will never not love celebrating a great media win.

Who would play you in the movie version of your life?
Emily Blunt (with or without British accent, her choice).

What is your favorite quote?
“What would you do if you knew you would not fail?” – Julia Chopay, freshmen year of college
