BIOGRAPHY:

Originally from Louisiana, Emily moved to Los Angeles with a film production degree from TCU.  Emily spent her first two at 20th Century Fox Television learning the ins-and-outs of TV development from pitch to script to pilot.  Her next position at Fox was as a Feature Film Production Coordinator where she developed skills of budgeting and scheduling as well as coordinating location scouts and liaising with film commissions all over the world.  Emily then moved into the freelance world, jumping on board the summer blockbuster X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE as Assistant Visual Effects Coordinator.  She then worked alongside legendary writer/director Garry Marshall as Script Coordinator for his films VALENTINE'S DAY and NEW YEAR'S EVE.  Garry became one of Emily's first directing mentors.  For the last five years, Emily has served as Creative Executive of the ATX Television Festival in Austin, TX where she has been in charge of programming, as well as conceptualizing and directing original video content with some of the biggest names in TV.   

In addition to studio films, Emily has produced two award-winning short films, GRANDE DRIP and KNIGHT TO D7.  Emily's directorial debut, the Twilight Zone-inspired thriller DRINK, premiered at the Dances With Films Festival in Hollywood to rave reviews.  The film has nearly 2 MILLION views on YouTube..

Emily has had the opportunity to shadow several notable television directors including Allison Liddi-Brown on ABC's SCANDAL and Joel Zwick on Disney's GIRL MEETS WORLD (Full Shadowing Resume below).  Emily is attached to two feature films, INHERITANCE and NO SUCH THING AS MONSTERS, and recent commercial work includes directing actress Kerry Washington (SCANDAL) in a spot for the Allstate Foundation.

Emily was selected as one of nine "Emerging Female Directors" for the WeForShe DirectHer Program and as a fellow for Ryan Murphy's new HALF FOUNDATION Directing Program. Her first feature, the thriller Nanny Seduction, starring Austin Highsmith, Wes Brown, Valerie Azlynn, & Erin Cahill, premiered on Lifetime in March of 2016. Her second feature, Christmas In Mississippi, starring Jana Kramer (One Tree Hill), Faith Ford (Murphy Brown), Wes Brown (True Blood), & Barry Bostwick (Spin City) premiered last year. This Christmas, Emily wrote and directed another movie for Lifetime, Hometown Christmas, starring Beverley Mitchell (7th Heaven), Stephen Colletti (One Tree Hill), Melissa Gilbert (Little House on the Prairie), and Brian McNamara (Army Wives) that will premiere on December 16th.

Emily is currently prepping two new TV movies and developing several other projects, including a scripted anthology series and an indie dramedy based on the story of her in-laws honeymoon in the 1970s.
