Emily in a few words

Hi! I'm Emily, and I'm an American copywriter, coder, and designer in Paris! I've led both product and content strategy teams and love writing in any context.

I earned my bachelor's degree at Brown University, an Ivy League school in the USA, then earned a master's in business.

In my 11-year career, I've worked at OpenClassrooms, Qonto, Criteo, Women Who Code, Glossier, le Ministère de l'Intérieur, and more. I'm bilingual in French and English.

If you think we should work together, please drop me a message!

“Emily is a resourceful, creative, all-around great human being to work with. Her work is always grounded in solving clear problems. As a manager, it’s hard to ask for more.”
- Brett Camper, Head of Product at ACLU, former Head of Product at Kickstarter

“Emily est une personne brillante, dotée à la fois de capacités créatives, d’écoute et d’analyse. J’ai été amené à recruter plus de 100 personnes pour OpenClassrooms depuis sa création, et je peux confirmer que la combinaison de ces compétences est très rare chez une personne. Ses compétences ne font aucunement débat au sein de notre société.”
- Mathieu Nebra, cofounder of OpenClassrooms

“Emily understands complex problems and brings great solutions to the table. Additionally, she’s enthusiastic, motivated, and great to be around. She’s a hard worker, learns quickly, and is skilled in many areas. Emily is definitely the kind of person that you want in your team.”
- Romain Kuzniak, CTO of OpenClassrooms

“Emily was of great help and inspiration to me. She is smart and gets things done but her most rare trait is that ability to make an entire team feel her enthusiasm to achieve a mission together."
- Patrick O'Malley, former Head of Product at Yahoo!
