Putting My Experience
to Work


Emma is an organizer and mom. She founded a social change strategy consulting business, EMStrategies, in 2018. Her clients include labor unions, educational equity organizations, and municipalities and school districts looking to develop meaningful community engagement strategies. 

She served on the House Commerce and Economic Development Committee in her first term in the Vermont House of Representatives where she championed modernizing the state unemployment system, funding BIPOC business and professional development with first-time state investments, and advancing a state COVID worker relief grant program.  She also introduced a dozen pieces of legislation to strengthen the equal pay law, improve employee working conditions with reliable work schedules and just cause termination rights, and ending the use of racist school mascots in public schools. 

Her past professional experience includes leading field organizing and leadership development work at Vermont-NEA for over a decade, directing the Vermont Livable Wage Campaign at the Peace & Justice Center, and serving as a City Councilor from the Old North End.

She served as the state chair of the Vermont Progressive Party and on various non-profit boards including the Vermont Women’s Fund, the Haymarket People’s Fund, Governor’s Institutes of Vermont and most recently, Robin’s Nest Child Care Center located in the Old North End.

She is a graduate of the Vermont Leadership Institute and Smith College with a degree in political science. Originally from Barre, Vermont, she lives in the Old North End with her wife, Megan and two small children.
