Emily is thrilled to begin working with Single Carrot Theatre as their Executive Director! For the last five years, she has worked with the Maryland State Department of Education’s Office of Fine Arts in the role of Project Manager. There she helped create and execute programs, professional development, resources, and events that furthered MSDE’s and her own mission for elevated, equitable, and accessible arts education. While with MSDE, Emily has worked as a theatre teaching artist and theatre director for multiple Maryland schools and theatre companies, continuing to foster her passion for the theatre and its transformative powers.

Prior to moving to Baltimore in 2015, Emily worked with Anne Arundel County Public School’s PVA program as a project manager, teaching artist, and study abroad coordinator. She has continued the latter two into 2020!

While working in education, Emily has served several arts committees who share her dedication to the arts, including the Emerging Arts Advocates, BWI Static Arts Committee, and The Maryland Theatre for Performing Arts. Additionally, she has devoted her time and energy to supporting the Maryland and DC theatre communities as a performer, director, teacher, and patron for almost two decades!

She is inspired by the work and mission of Single Carrot Theatre and can’t wait to continue the revolution!

“After 5 years with the Maryland State Department of Education’s Office of Fine Arts, I am thrilled to be moving back to my theatre roots with Single Carrot Theatre! I have a passion for the theatre and for Baltimore City, and I couldn’t be more honored to serve those communities in this new role. I am inspired by the work and mission of Single Carrot Theatre and can’t wait to continue the revolution!”
