  • Emmy is certified in plant-based nutrition from Cornell, and has traveled and sampled the best vegan food in many countries, including Iceland, Italy, France, and all over the US, including a year she spent traveling in an RV.
  • As a longtime vegan, she believes in sharing how delicious and easy the lifestyle can be, without being pushy or judgy, and taking a firmly anti-diet approach.
  • She has extensively studied the intersection of our food systems, climate and sustainability.


With over a decade of experience as a writer and editor, Emmy has contributed to numerous freelance publications, managed social media for a variety of brands and organizations, and worked as an editor for the Florida Senate as her first job out of college. In most of her work, she has focused on food, sustainability, nutrition, or the overlap of the three whenever possible. She's currently the director of marketing for a food and beverage brand and has a column on plant-based dining in her town's local newspaper.


Emmy earned a bachelor's degree in editing, writing, and media, as well as a master's in media and communication studies from Florida State University, where she focused on creative nonfiction writing and food and environmental communication.
