Areas of Focus

Emily's goal is to help her clients get the most out of their meetings and strategy sessions. Partnering with a facilitator or consultant, Emily visually captures and synthesizes the high level thinking of a group, using words, imagery and metaphor. Working in real time, she creates a series of large format charts that dynamically reflect the discussion back to the participants, allowing them to see gaps, patterns and possibilities.

She brings twenty years of experience in the visual communication field to her work. Her background as a graphic designer allows her to easily create the underlying architecture of a chart, so that the finished result shows a clear hierarchy of information.

In addition, Emily creates information graphics for organizations ­ murals, timelines or strategic illustrations that present complex information in an accessible and engaging format.

Emily is an excellent and flexible collaborator­ she can work with the current internal or external facilitators on a project, or she can bring in her own team. She has a core network of business consultants with whom she frequently partners. The specialty areas these consultants offer include strategic planning and integration processes, initiative planning, change management, and internal communication solutions.

She has a B.A. from Middlebury College, in Middlebury, VT, and an M.F.A. from the California College of the Arts in Oakland, CA.
