My name is Emilie Le Beau Lucchesi, PhD. I began my career as a journalist. I received my first assignment from the Chicago Tribune shortly after my twenty-fourth birthday. In the following decade, I wrote more than 800 stories for the esteemed paper.  My work has also run in the New York Times, LA Times, and the country's biggest newspapers.

In addition to my journalistic work, I also teach university courses and speak to professional groups, community organizations, and social clubs.
