Emily joined KATU in April 2011. She was born and raised in Kansas City and went to school in Evanston, IL where she graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.

After school, Emily worked in Evansville, IN and Tulsa, OK where she headed up the investigative reporting team and spent time anchoring on the weekends. Emily continued her broadcast career in the Midwest, reporting in Kansas City, MO.

Emily has been honored by the Oklahoma Associated Press, Heartland Emmy Chapter, and Society of Professional Journalists for her documentary and investigative work. With years of Midwestern living under her belt, Emily is thrilled to take on a new adventure and experience the beauty of the Northwest.

When she's not working, you'll probably find her outside exploring, taking advantage of all the incredible hiking, biking, skiing and everything outdoors Oregon has to offer. She can also be found following her teams on Sportscenter, rooting for her Northwestern Wildcats, Royals, Chiefs and Kansas Jayhawks and especially for her brother's MLS team, Sporting KC.

Emily is grateful to be part of the KATU team and looks forward to telling your stories.
