Emily lives in Chicago by way of the Village Of Coldwater, Ohio. She enjoys creating comedic content and listing her accomplishments in first person.

My work has been featured by The Onion, Reductress, McSweeney's, the iO Comedy Network, Chicago Magazine, Paper Rebel and other, more unspeakable places. I also draw nice things like comics and show posters and write some sweet copy as a freelancer. I frequently perform around town, both solo and with the indie team Uncle Garbage, at places like The Second City, iO Theater, The Annoyance Theater, Stage 773, Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival and Women's Funny Festival.

I am a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Uganda 2012-14), have an expired social work license and can often be found working with NGOs, so squishy interpersonal stuff is also pretty important to me. Feel free to say hi!
