Hi. I’m Em.

I’m a small business owner, award-winning marketer, and a PhD Candidate in Urban Planning. My dissertation research focuses on public-private partnerships (P3s) in public transit projects in the US. Additional research projects examine the growth of statewide mobility management networks, and the ways in which telehealth and transportation affect patients’ abilities to attend medical appointments. When not working on my dissertation, I can be found watching Law & Order or teaching my old cats new tricks.
