I worked with Emily at Cactus TV, where she assisted in casting the second series of ITV's 'The Munch Box'

Emily was absolutely brilliant to work with. Helped me hugely, both in auditioning the children (via Skype and phone), as well as helping me discuss their suitability and other issues around casting.

I would employ Emily again on every project ever! She's fantastic

Guy Lambert, Producer

Having worked with Emily on a highly pressurised production over the course of three and a half months, I can confidently say she is an excellent researcher in every way. Extremely bright, organised and dedicated, she will explore all avenues leaving no stone unturned, deliver what's needed within extremely short deadlines, at the same time as having a sound understanding of narrative along with the producer's editorial aims. In spite of her slim experience I cannot recommend her highly enough. I firmly believe she will be a safe pair of hands on any factual production.

Anna Keel, Producer Director

Emily is an exceedingly bright, resourceful and tenacious woman, who came to me notionally as a 'junior researcher' and swiftly proved herself to be hugely capable beyond her experience. It is no exaggeration to say that she was able to offer as much editorial input and as many creative options as the two assistant producers on our team - which speaks volumes to Emily's abilities. She takes a real pride in her work, she has great attention to detail, she's always thinking of what plan B might be, and her desire to learn coupled with her capacity to understand means that any shortcomings that might present themselves by virtue of her experience level are easily and quickly overcome. In short, Emily is a very impressive talent and I would not think twice about employing her as a key researcher on any team that I was building.

Nic Guttridge, Series Producer

Emily has worked tirelessly for us and has comes up top trumps every time. I don't doubt that she was smash any task I ask of her, whether that's finding unique contributors, perfect locations or helping out on location. She's dedicated, enthusiastic, keen and a pleasure to work with.
