Emma KuskeMarketing Producer
Although she was born just outside of Chicago, Emma was raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan with aspirations of moving to a big city. After graduating from the University of Michigan, she moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to pursue Theatre Management and Producing. Since then, she’s produced at theaters around the country, making the transition into the event industry relatively seamless. Her creative outlook and passion for organization drove her into brand management and marketing, which ultimately brought her to HMR Designs.
Outside of her work, Emma is an avid backpacker and traveler, overly invested dog-aunt, and freelance photographer. She always has a cup of coffee in her hand and notebook nearby, and although she is thrilled to be a part of the HMR team, one day she may just have to start a half-tea-house, half-library on a lake.
