Hello! It’s nice to meet you, I’m Emily Hawk.
Currently, I am a second year grad student at Rochester Institute of Technology, pursuing a masters in Communication and Media Technology. I also work full time as a writer in the finance industry for an investment management company local to Rochester. I was born and raised in the Rochester NY area, where I spent my summers on Keuka Lake and my winters on Bristol Mountain.
After graduating high school, I moved to Washington, D.C. to get a Bachelor’s Degree from American University in Public Communication with a minor in History. Post graduation and moving back home due to the high cost of living in Washington, D.C., and a few years working in customer service, I found my position as an RFP Information Specialist at Manning & Napier. I now spend my days writing about investment strategies and my nights learning about communication theories and techniques. I’m extremely interested in writing: specifically, how writing is becoming a more and more critical skill as the world moves to rely on the text-based world of the internet.
Outside of my professional and academic life, I have a few hobbies I love. Mainly, I love being outside, whether that means camping, hiking, boating, skiing, or sitting around a bonfire with friends. I also love music, especially live music, so I attend as many concerts as possible. I’m a dedicated Buffalo Bills fan and Formula 1 enthusiast, which are, as many of my friends have pointed out, the most different sports I could possibly support. In general, I like to spend time with family and friends and enjoy the great area of Rochester and western New York.
