Emily Gallt

#BeBrave means not being afraid to take chances. Often the most groundbreaking realizations are born from an idea that seemed crazy at the time.

A self-professed “word nerd,” Emily loves telling stories. So much so that she used to rewrite her favorite storybooks as a child and currently authors a blog in her spare time. In her role as a Marketing Strategist at CHIEF, Emily uses her love of the written word to help our clients articulate their missions, visions and values in order to bolster their market position and achieve business objectives. When she’s not putting pen to paper, Emily enjoys brainstorming and spit-balling ideas with coworkers and clients to tap into hidden insights and uncover new ways of thinking. Emily’s work developing messaging platforms and strategic outreach plans has helped dozens of public- and private-sector organizations reach their highest potential. But hey, that’s her story to tell.

Emily holds a BA in Government from Centre College.

Hometown

Lexington, KY—The Horse and College Basketball Capital of the World. 

Noteworthy Story or Next Adventure

Every summer, my family goes to Estes Park, Colorado/Rocky Mountain National Park. There's nothing better than being surrounded by mountains and crystal clear lakes to reset your mind and spirit.

Favorite App/Book/Pub

I made a pledge to read more women authors recently, and read both A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan and The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer in one sitting each.

DC Go-to's

I love my neighborhood—the H Street Corridor. The rich history, coupled with the great new restaurants, makes for an awesome place to live.
