Emily works with her hands.


The importance of creating space for women-identifying makers within male-dominated crafts/trades has become increasingly clear with her years of experience in the woodshop. In July of 2016 she organized and moderated a panel on the problems, evolutions, and possible futures of these male-dominated spaces as part of the National Furniture Society Conference held in Philadelphia.

She currently works as a builder/fabricator at a small woodworking company in the neighborhood of Port Richmond, and makes furniture at her own space nearby.
