About Emily

Hi (2)

Hi there, welcome to my portfolio.

I’m a journalist, writer, editor and communications expert specializing in the areas of cannabis and drug policy.

I currently work as a cannabis content writer and editor with Grasslands, a startup content agency serving businesses and executives in the cannabis and hemp industries. On the side, I cover cannabis and drug policy issues as a freelance writer and dabble in cannabis media consulting.

Previously, I served as founding digital editor and chief reporter at Extract, a cannabis news vertical operated under the Sun Times Network between 2015 and 2017. I’ve also worked as a multimedia contributor for Homicide Watch Chicago, the Chicago Sun-Times and other news publications in the Chicago area.

I received my bachelor’s degree in political science at Roosevelt University and my master’s degree in journalism at DePaul University.

I’m passionate about storytelling and exploring new models of digital media. I’m particularly interested in covering issues at the intersection of drug policy, public health and criminal justice in the United States.
