Most recently, at a health tech start-up in the United States, Emily launched 3 operational teams and piloted 4 clinical care programs. Simultaneously, she managed product teams to develop risk profiles based on machine learning algorithms, and test impact through randomized control trials. Her work decreased hospitalization rates for elderly populations by 50% and improved data quality by 75%.

Before returning to the US, Emily built operations and data systems for social enterprises in Kenya, Senegal, and India. As an early employee at Sanergy, she developed the pilot brand and marketing strategy for toilets in Nairobi's slums. Later, at myAgro and Vera Solutions, she used human-centered design to develop and program data systems, improving the insights and decisions of international start-ups.
