Bachelor of Fine Arts, Interior Design, Iowa State University
Hailing from Sigourney, Iowa, Emmie is passionate about her friends, family, travel, culture, good food and nature. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, hiking, watercolor and motorcycle rides. You’d never guess, but Emmie is also a dedicated martial artist — she’s been practicing Taekwondo for nineteen years!
A fan of dachshunds, she has two of her own: Barley and Rye. Emmie’s guilty pleasures include donuts, coffee and Häagen-Dazs coffee ice cream. She’s a fan of nonfiction and the poet Rupi Kaur, and her favorite TV show is Seinfeld. If she weren’t a designer, Emmie says she’d probably still be working in some other area of architecture or design.
