Emma Harrison marries her experience in public affairs with her skills in public relations, media relations, digital engagement and visual communication to tell clients’ stories of impact and identify creative solutions to complex issues.

Emma takes an objective-driven approach to communications and public-affairs campaigns, first identifying target audiences and measurable goals, then strategically employing tactics to meet stakeholders where they are.
