Emily Heinkel

Emily Heinkel is a journalist-turned-marketer with a knack for creative communications and digital marketing strategies. She prides herself on creating original content that speaks to targeted audiences through conversational language, compelling images and moving storytelling.

Heinkel began her career with Ad4! two months after graduating from Troy University with a multimedia journalism degree. As a Trojan, she was a reporter, photographer and feature section editor for the student newspaper, The Tropolitan. In those rolls, Heinkel learned the power of human-interest writing, interviewing and information gathering skills, as well as how to live on deadlines.

While in college, Heinkel worked as a freelance photographer for her own brand, Wild and Well Photography. During this venture, she fell in love with marketing this small business and started independently researching digital marketing strategies.

As a research analyst at LSINC, LLC in Huntsville, she worked with an executive team to solve branding and large-scale communications conflicts for Fortune 500 companies. She gained valuable consulting experience that helped her get where she is today.

Heinkel is originally from Athens, AL and lives there now with her husband, Dan, and her calico cat. She still enjoys playing photographer in her spare time and she also serves as a leader for her 20-somethings small group that meets weekly.
