Emma oversees strategic engagements and external affairs for the Citi Ventures team. Her primary goal is to ensure that the diverse, disruptive, and unique stories of Citi Ventures are being shared with key stakeholders across all content channels including media, social media, and speaking engagements.

Most recently, Emma led corporate communications for Oscar, a health insurance start-up focused on delivering a better health care experience. In her two and a half years with Oscar, she helped the company grow exponentially, raise over $500 million, and launch new products that will change the way consumers access health care. Prior to Oscar, Emma worked for the Brunswick Group, a global communications firm specializing in financial and crisis communications. Among the many projects she had the opportunity to work on, ranging from multi-billion dollar mergers to Chapter 11 filings, she gravitated towards mandates that had a social impact component. Emma is no stranger to the financial services world, having started her career working for Bloomberg L.P. and interning with Goldman Sachs in their investment banking division.

Emma graduated cum laude from Cornell University with a B.S. in environmental policy and planning. When she’s not reading the news you can find her riding horses on Long Island, practicing yoga, and trying new restaurants near her apartment in Brooklyn.
