Emily, originally from Stevens Point, WI, moved to Madison in 2016. With a BA in Arts Management from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, she spent her formative years in Madison working in the Events/Operations Department at Overture Center for the Arts. Actively involved with the greater Madison community, she has also spent time as the Event & Marketing Coordinator with Jazz at Five, as an Event Associate with Elevate Events, and as the Music Director for an area church. Through these roles, Emily discovered her passion for people, new ideas, and initiatives, and finding unique and valuable ways to bring them together. As Director of Community & Programming with 100state she aims to create an inclusive, dynamic, and collaborative environment for both members and guests. She looks forward to expanding the ways 100state interacts and connects with its members and the community at large. Outside of work, Emily enjoys travel, live music, marshmallows, and naps.
