Prior to The House Fund, Emily operated across marketing and business development roles at ShopStyle Inc. where she spent 7 years building a global influencer marketing platform. As Senior Marketing Manager, she helped bring products to life that enable digital entrepreneurs to monetize their content, #sponsored.

Emily is a proud UC Berkeley graduate (Media Studies/Mass Communications). Despite her lack of video game skills, Emily spent her first post-Cal years working alongside founders at online gaming startups, including Roblox Corp.

When she is not building community at The House Fund, Emily can be found indulging in her sense of adventure through travel, creating or enjoying the arts, or hosting her friends for sushi and (very competitive) game nights.
