Thrown into event planning while working as a PR director, Emily discovered her professional love quite unexpectedly. Always a detail-oriented person, she thrives on putting the pieces of an event together just like an intricate puzzle. Whether it's hunting down the perfect bargain at a flea market to fit a client's budget or making sure even the latest registrant has a name tag, Emily works tirelessly to meet clients' needs. Fueled by Dr. Pepper and bubble baths, Emily has orchestrated everything from intimate donor luncheons to an 850-attendee fundraising dinner.
Emily fell in love with Norman while earning her Bachelor's degree in Journalism at the University of Oklahoma. After dragging her high school sweetheart to town from TCU to marry her, she now enjoys living in a 100-year-old house with him and their two kids. When she's not planning events, Emily can be found shopping for vintage treasures, reading murder mystery thrillers or watching Dateline.
"I cannot thank Emily enough for all that she did. When she asked if she could host a fundraiser for us and I gave her my criteria, 'not a gala and a place you actually want to be with the ENTIRE family on precious weekend time,' she ran with it. I cannot sing her praises highly enough. She worked with ALL of my crazy with 200% grace and kept it all running smoothly the entire time. She showed up early and stayed late. She got it done. If you know anyone who has an event, they need to call Emily. You can thank us for that sweet little tip later."

"I will be using Paper Kite Events again for our annual alumni event. Emily was organized, accessible and professional. We had alumni coming in from all over Oklahoma. With so many moving parts Emily handled everything masterfully. As a nonprofit her service was first class without all of the overhead. She is worth every penny!"
- Mike Robins, Legislative Exchange Academy
"Emily took care of all the details (both the big and the small) for our annual women's retreat so that we were able to relax and enjoy - which is exactly the purpose of a retreat!"
- Keely Steger, City Presbyterian Church
"Emily has planned events for me for many years now, and her ability to take care of all the details never disappoints! She has planned and promoted everything for me from donor luncheons and legislative breakfasts to community grassroots bus tours on a national scale to dinner and an auction with a thousand attendees. After all that, I know I can trust her to take care of everything so I can enjoy the event!"
- Stuart Jolly, Command Solutions
"I highly recommend Emily! If you want a worry-free and perfectly run event, she's who you need. She has done an outstanding job on our events & I greatly appreciate her integrity and hard work ethic. Thank you, Emily!"
- Ginger Tinney, Professional Oklahoma Educators
"Emily’s organized and professional approach to planning my events has proven to be a real help in reducing my stress as they approach. She ensures everything is completed in a timely manner, and the care she puts into even the tiniest of details has really made Flatlander's open house and birthday parties something special!"
