INTRODUCING EM J! // This week

Hi everyone! I’m Emily, aka Em J, the new Operations Manager at Susty Party. I’m here to make our supply chain systems more efficient and effective so that Susty Party can run like a well-oiled machine!


After graduating with my MPA from NYU’s Wagner School of Public Service in 2012, I spent the last year looking for a company that uses innovation and good business practices to make the world a better place – and I’m thrilled that I’ve finally found the right fit with Susty Party!


About me: I have worked for the Centre for Social Innovation, Catchafire, and NYU (where I also earned a BA from NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study). I plan to start my own social enterprise brewpub, Simple Beer, which provides consumers a social good beer and bar option. I love theatre and am managing director of Nora’s Playhouse, a nonprofit women’s theatre company. When I’m not being overly ambitious, I like playing soccer, begrudgingly watching football, traveling, trying new craft beers, and reading poetry.
