Who Is Emory

Emory loves words. She believes they are powerful tools with the potential to create worlds. When her parents realized her bevy of words also came with a flair for the dramatic they put her in the local theatre straightaway – and a grand love affair for story was born. This love for story led her along both a creative path as well as a spiritual one. Believing the good news of Jesus to be the greatest story of all led her into the heart of ministry where she both served on church staff and toured the country performing one woman shows with her non-profit Dramatic Encounter. Her passion for the Word of God opened the door to her initial experimentation with the spoken word art form. Speaking the Word of God over the people of God to stir up the Spirit of God within them was the goal – but exploring the beauty of spoken word poetry was a creative shot to her soul she’s yet to recover from. Emory currently resides in Los Angeles, CA where she prefers to soak up the sun on an amazing hike as opposed to the beach. Her time is spent with friends and pouring into those in the entertainment industry. Her dream is to one day own land in the lovely city of Franklin, TN and take nice long motorcycle rides.


Dramatic Encounter is a non-profit dramatic arts ministry founded by Emory in 2005. She toured for several years performing one woman shows (The Thread and Grace’s Café), spoken word, emceeing events, and speaking and teaching for workshops. While the shows are now retired, Emory is available for speaking engagements and spoken word performances. Dramatic Encounter, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization.

She is a delight to work with both in front of and behind the scenes. Adapting to any ministry setting, Emory does a top-notch job of emceeing, performing, and ministering, adjusting her work to meet the needs of the conference leader. She is sensitive, creative and desires to serve the Lord with her whole heart.”
