HI THERE! I’M EMMA.
Welcome! I'm Emma Hamill, a recent graduate of Meredith College in Raleigh, NC, with a B.A. in Communications. My coursework includes computer design, public relations writing and techniques, social media strategy, public relations campaigns, marketing principles, and digital media production.
As a kid, I earned the title "Emma the Lion-Hearted", because of my ability to fearlessly accept challenges and try new things. I’m highly flexible and always willing to face new challenges, solve problems, and find new ways to do things. My biggest asset is my intuition and ability to connect with and understand others. I approach all aspects of my life with empathy first - then strategy.
