  • Emily grew up cooking alongside culinarily adventurous parents, but her own love affair with food started during a semester abroad in Florence, Italy.
  • Her work in food writing has run the gamut from producing fun, informative blog content for TikTok-famous recipe developers to ghostwriting a book on regenerative agriculture and sustainable food systems.
  • She's a voracious reader and has been known to sit down and read a good cookbook cover to cover (Marcella Hazan's "Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking" is her favorite).


Emily is a Milwaukee-born, Amsterdam-based freelance writer and social media strategist. With over a decade of professional writing experience, in 2021, she left her career as an academic librarian to move abroad and pursue writing full-time. She covers food, travel, and sustainability topics — and spends as much time as possible traveling to new places, learning about global cuisines and the people that produced them. When she's not writing, you're likely to find her hunting down the best Mexican food in the city (no easy feat in the Netherlands), experimenting in the kitchen, or creating a detailed itinerary for her next trip.


Emily has B.A.s in English literature and Italian studies, as well as M.A.s in language, literature, & translation and library & information science from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
