Thanks for stopping by! My name is Emily and I'm glad you're here.
I am a writer and Emmy Award-winning journalist. Most recently, I anchored the morning newscast at KMOV in St. Louis Missouri.
Here's the quick version of my bio: I grew up about an hour outside from St. Louis in a town called Washington, Missouri. I am a fourth-generation Mizzou Tiger and graduate of the Missouri School of Journalism. After college, I moved to Norfolk, Virginia to start my TV career at ABC affiliate WVEC. There I covered a hurricane, an earthquake, and told a lot of stories related to the community's strong military presence.
I've been in St. Louis for the last five years, reporting on a wide range of topics, from the unrest in Ferguson, to tornadoes and snow storms. In my last two years anchoring the morning show, I covered St. Louis area schools extensively, receiving the 2016 Media Award for Outstanding Reporting in Education by the Missouri State Teachers Association. In 2015, I was named Best Anchor by the Missouri Broadcasters Association. I am a two-time regional Emmy winner, and Gazelle STL magazine recently gave me the honor of being on its 'Top 50 Women in St. Louis' list.
Being involved in the community is big for me. That's why I served on the board of Girls In The Know, a non-profit working to empower young girls, and currently as a member of the St. Louis Crisis Nursery Young Professionals Board.
