Meet our newest member of the Trilix PR/Communications team, Emily Esleck! Emily was born and raised in The Magic City and has joined our Birmingham office as a communications specialist. Emily brings a love of storytelling, communicating with audiences in many forms. “It’s my ultimate passion,” says Emily. By background, she’s a writer, but she has picked up public relations, marketing and creative design/production experience along the way. “Everyone’s path has twists and turns, but eventually, you’ll land where you need to be. And that’s exactly how I feel about being at Trilix,” says Emily.
An Auburn University graduate, Emily received bachelor’s degrees in communications and journalism and in Spanish. She most recently worked for a magazine publisher in Birmingham and, before that, D Magazine in Dallas. As communications specialist, Emily will help McWane Inc. and other clients with their public relations, social media and communications efforts.
We are thrilled to have Emily join our growing Birmingham team! To learn more about Emily, read her blog: http://www.everything-life-and-style.com/. In the meantime, learn some fun facts about her below, such as she’s currently writing a sci-fi/mystery novel!
Favorite meal or restaurant in Birmingham?
Italian food is my favorite of all time. Gianmarco’s is really good authentic Italian! Their tiramisu is to die for!
If you didn’t work in this industry, what career path would you choose?
I’ve always said if I didn’t major in communications and journalism, I would be a graphic design or interior design major (sort of still in the creative field…what can I say? I’m doing what I love! Definitely a creative at heart. Wouldn’t survive being a doctor). However, in high school, I thought about forensic psychology. I loved crime shows, but then when I got around to thinking about it, I didn’t want to be surrounded by death and horrible crimes all the time.
Roll Tide or War Eagle?
WAR EAGLE ALL DAY EVERYDAY. I was an Auburn Majorette (baton twirler) for five football seasons. Out on the field every game cheering on the Tigers makes for a die-hard fan.
Tell me something no one could guess about you.
I’m writing a sci-fi/mystery novel about time travel that I hope will be published, and then if it sells, I’d love to make it into a series. Gotta finish the first one though…
If Trilix gave out awards, you would be voted “Most Likely To…”
Most Likely to Lose at Cornhole … or as you guys apparently say it in Iowa, bags
