In 2013, Emily founded Neoera to further explore progressive design practices and offer clients a collaborative, transparent and service-oriented experience.
Never one to back down from a challenge, Emily seeks out projects that tap into her instinctual ability to simplify problems and provide creative solutions for her clients. Energetic and driven, she focuses on building meaningful relationships to ensure her clients’ understanding and peace of mind throughout the planning, design and build-out of a project. From hand-drawn sketches to 3D computer modeling, Emily utilizes a suite of tools to communicate her vision to her clients and make sure everyone is always on the same page.
Emily earned her Master of Architecture from the University of Colorado Denver. Born and raised in Iowa, she received her bachelor’s degree in journalism with a minor in fashion design from Iowa State University. While getting her master’s degree, Emily worked for Burkett Design, Inc. now BurkettEUA, where she planned and designed projects ranging in size from 2,000 to 500,000 square feet. Before starting Neoera, Emily led multiple interior and exterior architectural projects at Anderson Mason Dale Architects and co-founded REthink Design Studio.
When not designing, Emily enjoys traveling, dancing with her two daughters and playing guitar.
We are a team of architects and designers that believe great design can and should be accessible to everyone. We seek to create functional spaces that bring optimism and delight to its user. We honor color, texture, and asymmetry in our work and our strength lies in the relationships we develop with our clients, collaborators, and builders.
