“Take initiative, venture outside your comfort zone.”

+ Emily Gilles

Executive Assistant

If you can dream it, you can do it.

The best advice I can give anyone is to believe in yourself, take risks, and trust the process.  As your mindset changes, the world around you will change with it.

I realized my passion for marketing while pursuing my Bachelor’s degree at Wright State University.  Wilderness Agency welcomed me to a world of possibility, and has provided me with valuable experience since.  Every day is an opportunity to further my growth while helping to support our team.

As executive assistant, I provide administrative support and create marketing materials in an extremely fast-paced environment.  Working closely with Richard, I help implement marketing plans and strategies for our clients.  There are always new opportunities that arise, and it is an exciting process.  Managing the calendar during sales meetings, I make sure to be proactive in anticipating needs.

Outside of the agency, you can find me studying at home with my cat or reading new books for insight.  I also love to travel and the outdoors.  Around Dayton, I’m always on the search for new sights and enjoy finding local shops, helping to support other small businesses.
