Ingrid Emerick

One of Girl Friday’s leading ladies as well as CFO, Ingrid has a true soft spot for spreadsheets. In addition to strategizing on company direction, wining and dining clients, and copiloting Girl Friday as it evolves with the times, she’s always got her eye on the bottom line. Ingrid also teaches editing at the University of Washington, collaborates on books with subject-matter experts from provocateur Dan Savage to adolescent expert Dr. Laura Kastner, and even finds time to edit the odd Scandinavian thriller.
