Emily tends to believe that she can do anything, and she approaches life with that limitless belief and love of learning. From scuba diving to tearing down walls in her home to growing and preserving her own food, Emily optimistically tries, likely fails, and then masters many skills. The curiosity, desire to learn, and optimism that serve as the cornerstone of her personal life also guide her work at Public Sector Consultants.

A generalist at heart, Emily supports a variety of nonprofits and government agencies in their research, strategy, data analysis, stakeholder engagement, and anything that the organization needs to address essential issues in their communities. She has worked with various communities to effect positive systemic change and strategic organizational growth. These communities include people who are children, homeless young adults, refugees, asylum seekers, neurodiverse, the elderly, arts professionals, medical staff, and medically complex children. Each opportunity has deepened Emily’s understanding of program development, informed her approach to community-based work, and challenged her to strengthen her strategy, cross-sector collaboration, relationship-building, and program development skills.

Before PSC, Emily worked as a leader, program specialist, and research analyst with a consulting firm and nonprofits in Michigan and Illinois.
