Emily joins OKW with nearly a decade of design experience with emphasis in Healthcare, Higher Education, and Corporate design. She quickly learned how her love for people translated into her passion for design and eventually evolved into her love for mentoring. Emily’s diverse portfolio, strong communication skills, and endless passion and drive defined her move to OKW Architects to lead our interiors studio. On the weekends, Emily can be found at the dog beach with her black lab or in the yoga studio (without her black lab). While Emily loves the energy of the city, she also loves escaping to her family’s lake house, where she can often be found floating on a raft or being towed on a kneeboard or tube behind the boat.
