Meet Emily

Emily Mills is an author, designer, illustrator, instructor, and sketchnoting fanatic based in Nashville, TN. She believes if you aren’t communicating visually, you might as well not be communicating at all. No matter what she’s working on or who she’s working with, her overall mission is to help people connect and communicate with each other using the “human language” that can cross barriers like language, generation, location, and even time: drawing.

    What People Are Saying:

    Three years ago, Emily spoke at UNC and really inspired me to think big! She made me realize that we shouldn't limit opportunities to a certain location and that led me to where I am today, currently interning in Barcelona. Thank you!

    She’s amazing, she tells you how it is and what the real world is like. It’s very helpful compared to the sugar coating you get every where else.

    Emily’s teaching style is so approachable and fun! Even if you’re like me and afraid your artistic skills are lacking, she’ll help you feel confident. You won’t regret taking her class!

    Sketchnoting takes practice. It was humbling, but I didn't want to stop! The 3 hour workshop went by so fast, I wanted part 2! Really enjoyed the workshop and meeting Emily.
