Emilie has always been split between a life of creative pursuit and one rooted in logic and practicality. PNCA’s MFA in Collaborative Design has synthesized these two juxtaposed practices and given a language to her thought process while honing her abilities as a systems thinker, designer, strategist and collaborator. As a result, she now considers herself a Design Logician.
With graduation on the horizon, Emilie is actively pursuing a career focused on the advancement of healthcare, biomedical technologies and clinical studies through design collaborations. Her current work concentrates on pediatric migraine sufferers and combines various design methodologies, research practices and a transdisciplinary approach.
Emilie holds a BFA in Studio Art from Appalachian State University, Boone, NC. She concentrated in Fibers, Printmaking and Metalsmithing.
