Straight shooter, client advocate with wit

Emily grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan. If you don’t know Emily (and you really should), you have yet to experience her passion for everything from politics to family and friends to life in general. Her vociferous laughter, her inability to follow the posted speed limit and her propensity to pepper her vocabulary with words that might make a sailor blush exemplify her joie de vivre. In addition to her fabulous work, Emily enjoys spending her rare spare time with her husband, their two daughters and beloved pooch, Roux, who is possibly a dingo.
