Emily started on ACX and understands the struggles that new narrators entering the industry face now. Emily was a full time narrator working solely on ACX before she ever worked with a publisher. After deciding she wanted to move to mainstream publishing, she successfully transitioned from all indie clients to working only for publishers over the course of one calendar year. She has been working as a full time narrator for eight years and has narrated over 400 audiobooks for nearly every major publisher, including Penguin Random House, Macmillan, Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, Hachette, Dreamscape, Blackstone, Brilliance, Tantor, Audible, and many more.

Inspired by her theatrical background, including her BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, her time at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, and her studies in performing for film and television at Stuart Rogers Studios in Los Angeles, Emily has created a unique method for engaging authentically with the text and bringing dynamic characters to life. Her approach can be used for any book, character, or genre, as evidenced by her widely varied career in many genres.
