The People Behind the PR: Emily Embury

By July 25, 2012October 14th, 2017No Comments

Each week we’ll feature a Q&A with one member of our dynamic team. CB&A is an agency that values its employees, and we hope you enjoy learning a bit more about the people behind the PR. 

Emily is a Senior Account Executive at CB&A.

Emily and Barley

Dogs or cats? Woof. My dog Barley, a soft coated wheaten terrier, is the love of my life – aside from my husband of course.

Morning or night person? Morning but only if a good cup of coffee is available.

Best PR advice you can fit inside of a tweet? Act like a duck…stay calm, cool and collected on the surface even if you’re paddling like crazy under water.

Favorite subject in elementary school? Art class. My mom still has a box full of my art projects.

If days lasted 25 hours, what would you do with the extra hour? Practice Bikram yoga. If yoga were a pill, believe me, everyone would take it.

Current Pandora station? Of Monsters & Men based on a recommendation from a friend.

If you weren’t in PR, what would you be doing? Running an organic vegetable farm with goats. I love goat cheese.

What was the first thing you learned to cook? I really can’t remember, which probably explains why I don’t cook today. Baking is my specialty.

Favorite condiment? Ranch, it’s the new ketchup. And good ranch is hard to find.

Favorite sport and team? Football. I grew up in Green Bay and used to work for the Packers. But I certainly cheer for the Badgers as well.

Dinner with your favorite literary character or author, who would you choose? Gone with the Wind was an early favorite – longest book I could find in my middle school library – so I would love to dine with Scarlett O’Hara.

UW-Madison: great college or greatest college? Greatest college is an understatement. If you can’t tell, I’m an alum. Bucky Badger was even a guest at my wedding!
