Originally from Washington D.C., Emma graduated from the College of William and Mary with a major in Psychology and a minor in Hispanic Studies. In 2011, after years of practicing her Oscar acceptance speech in front of the bathroom mirror, she moved to Chicago to take on her dream of life performance.
Emma spent two years as an actor for The Second City Touring Company, and currently you can find her performing around Chicago with her very favorite people. She is a member of an iO Harold team (Smoking Hot Dad) and is on a house team at CIC Theater (Little Gary). She also writes for and produces a variety show with her two best friends featuring female performers in Chicago, called JOAN. Emma has filmed two feature length productions (Party Time Party Time and Scraps), a five-part TV series (Thrifted), was featured on a comedy series (Shrink), multiple comedic and industrial shorts, and was in a national fast food commercial. She has trained at iO Theater, The Annoyance, and Acting Studio Chicago. Emma is represented by Paonessa Talent.
