“I was lucky enough to hire Emily onto my UX Design team for her first full time role out of design school. Emily is a gifted visual designer and illustrator who supplements these skills with a delightful personality, humbleness, willingness to learn and a consistently positive attitude. It has been an absolute delight to watch her grow her skills and confidence in UX, customer engagement, collaboration and fearless creativity. She is a wonderful, enthusiastic collaborator and has an incredibly thoughtful, intelligent and subtle approach to her insightful illustrations. Emily is a gift to work with!”—Melanie Polkosky, PhD, ACC
