Emily Kornblut

Emily joined Really Useful Media in 2009 to combine two of her passions: mission-driven work and documentary storytelling. As executive producer, Emily partners with each client to discover their best stories, communicate impact, and develop tailored methods for audience engagement. An experienced content strategist, she brings her clients’ work to life through a proven method of interviewing and narrative building. Her detail-oriented project management style helps clients execute on their vision while meeting deadlines and staying within budget.

Her previous professional experience includes over a decade in nonprofit and education management and consulting, work that took her to more than ten countries on four continents.

Emily has a BA in History and International Development from McGill University and an MA in International Education Development from Teachers College, Columbia University.

When she’s not dreaming up new ideas for clients, Emily enjoys running and spending time with her family. She is also the author of Jaws Wired Shut, a culinary chronicle of her summer on a blender diet while recovering from a broken jaw, which has been featured in the New York Times, Serious Eats, and Eater.
