Emily Manchester has been with Dotdash since 2016. A former editor for The Spruce, she was a part of the team that launched the original site in 2017. Before working in lifestyle editorial, and eventually transitioning to growth & strategy, Emily actually began her career in fashion as an Editor and Stylist. She is now the Senior SEO Analyst for Treehugger, TripSavvy, and ThoughtCo.
- Editor at The Spruce for 2+ years
- Contributed 25+ articles to The Spruce, TripSavvy, and LiveAbout
Working her way up from an internship in college, Emily eventually became a Fashion Editor and Project Coordinator at Everywear, a style service startup helmed by Brandon Holley, previously the editor-in-chief of Lucky Magazine.
It was here that Emily honed in on her editorial skills as well as developed a knack for product, becoming a partial contributor to the product team.
While working for Everywear, she also began to consistently contribute content to LiveAbout, another Dotdash site. She eventually accepted a full time position at Dotdash and was a part of the team that launched the original Spruce site in February 2017.
Emily participated in a 3+1 program, graduating from SUNY Oneonta and The Fashion Institute of Technology at the same time with a Bachelor's in Fashion Merchandising and an Associate's in Advertising and Marketing Communications. Throughout college, Emily's aspirations to become a fashion magazine journalist led her to take courses that actually began to steer her toward digital content. Her senior year at FIT, she held two simultaneous editorial internships: one for Surface Magazine and Watch Journal, and another for Everywear.
