With an eye for detail and a love for design, Emily brings a fresh view of interior design to the Drury team. Her passion for beautiful interiors has been the driving force behind the creation of stunning kitchens and bathrooms in an array of styles for her clients. “I design to create solutions that assist in making lifelong memories. Seeing through design concepts to transformation is the most rewarding part of the job.”

After graduating from Iowa State University’s College of Design, with multiple coveted design internships under her belt, Emily hit the ground running and has been an asset to Drury Design ever since. She earned the prestigious honor of being inducted into the NKBA’s Thirty Under 30 program in 2019,  joining an elite group of nearly 250 alumni representing rising leaders of the kitchen and bath industry from around the country. Emily was selected by top industry professionals for this distinction based on her impressive design portfolio highlighting her creativity, passion, and drive. 

She has worked with custom builders and clients alike with the overall layout, design, and specifications of their homes and specifically their kitchens and bathrooms. Additionally, she has designed alongside Drury Design’s Creative Director and President, Gail Drury, CMKBD, for over three years. Throughout that time she has worked to create countless NKBA award-winning spaces, including Best in Show, and Most Dramatic Makeover.
