Director of Internal Operations
Emily loves working with her talented, creative colleagues, working collaboratively to achieve excellent results. She manages Human Resources and Marketing for all of the Gabriel Builders Companies, and Operations for LH Design Studio.
Emily brings over 20 years of customer-facing communications experience to Gabriel Builders, working for elite brands such as the American Heart Association, Greenville Drive, Greenville Theatre, and her alma mater UT Chattanooga, where she earned a degree in Mass Communications with minors in Merchandising and Economics. She has three children, two at USC Upstate and one at Emory Law; in her spare time, you will most likely find her either watching a history show, a basketball game, or on a hike with her husband.
Committed to making a positive difference in her community, Emily volunteers and serves on panels throughout the Upstate in need of branding or fundraising guidance.
People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway. ~Mother Teresa
