FORA.tv Speaker - Emily Pickrell
Emily Pickrell, recently appointed Editor of the new American Water Intelligence (AWI) magazine, brings to the table a potpourri of journalism and public policy experience, and a keen eye for financial stories.
Emily formerly worked as a journalist for Thomson Reuters where she chased stories on accounting issues related to the financial crisis, including the convoluted rules related to the valuation of sub-prime mortgage bonds. She has also worked as a public policy auditor at the United States Government Accountability Office, reporting on issues for Congress such as port security risk management, nuclear waste clean-up contracting and disabled veterans' job programs. Her experience also includes work as an auditor for CARE (the leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty) as a micro-finance specialist, where she was able to visit a range of water projects in Ethiopia.
Emily has a master's degree in investigative journalism from Columbia University and wrote her master's thesis on how the government planned to oversee its $8 billion dollar a year military supplies contract in Iraq. She also has a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) accreditation, a master's degree in Russian and East European Studies from George Washington University and has spent several years in the Czech Republic. She speaks Czech, German and Spanish.
