Current Projects

Emily works with clients on PLM strategy and implementation. On working with Kalypso, she says, "The most exciting thing about Kalypso is in its unique set of values. The firm is focused on providing our clients with professional, yet diverse personalities to meet the industry specific needs of the client. At Kalypso, I have learned that a successful client relationship is one that does not end at project completion."

Outside of Kalypso

Emily is a Carolina girl at heart. She enjoys weekend retreats from the city to the Outer Banks where she can soak up the rays and relax with a book. Emily has played the violin for 20 years (although currently a little out of practice) and hopes to join a local symphony in the future.
