Connect with Emily:


The first word that comes to mind when you meet Emily is versatile! Born in St. Louis and raised in Villa Ridge this is a woman whose intelligence, talents and personality lights up a room.

After attending college and following a career course in travel and tourism, Emily entered an intern program, working on the American Orient Express. Continuing to further her education, her additional skills transitioned her into various executive administrative positions - but with her passion for working with people she soon found herself gravitating back to The Orient Express.

“Developing friendships, visiting amazing parts of this beautiful country, and meeting incredible people from all walks of life, only served as a further reminder that I was meant to work in a career that served people.”

After years of travel, Emily decided it was time to settle in one location. The state of Washington felt like the perfect home to her, as she settled in for what would become a nine year stay. During these years her professional life had evolved into managing and leasing commercial properties. But with her many gifts and interests, Emily soon realized her talent for photography, bringing her ever growing versatility into a successful photography business while also working on acquiring her real estate license.

Moving back to Missouri in 2010 , she has been listed as one of the top 25 wedding photographers in the St. Louis area for the past three years. With her previous real estate experience she soon felt that it was time to use her natural abilities for helping people by getting her Missouri real estate license.

“People trust me with their family memories and their homes. I consider their trust an incredible honor.”

After spending time with different real estate companies, Emily decided to get in touch with Grant Hickman owner of GHREA. After several hours of talking together, Grant knew that Emily and GHREA were a natural fit.

A passionate and impressive addition to the GHREA family, Emily continues with her personal approach to helping families acquire their dream.
