About Us

Emily Headshot.PNG

"I love using my talents to help people focus on what they do best. When you're in the consulting space, no two days look alike. Some days I'm setting up Quickbooks accounts. Other days I'm ghost writing blogs, designing websites, maintaining databases or organizing spreadsheets. I love it all, and it is so fulfilling to partner with small business owners as they pursue what they love, too!"

Emily has 8 years of experience in the private mental health industry, where she held various roles - most recently Director of Business Operations and Strategy, before co-founding KORE in 2018. When she's not working, she's a mom, a Clemson football fan (and proud alum), and a foster care advocate.
