In honor of Women’s History Month, we are featuring women throughout the month of March who are influencing and leading Tilson’s mission to build America’s information infrastructure. For this week’s #tilsontuesdays employee highlight, meet Emmalee!
Emmalee is a Sourcing Analyst on Tilson’s Project Controls team, based remotely in Colorado. She supports our growing Fleet, Subcontractor, and Sourcing teams by reporting on fleet use and safety metrics, analyzing spend across vendors, tracking subcontractor onboarding, and much more. Through her data analysis and reporting, Emmalee is helping to drive our supply chain strategy, cut costs, and mitigate risks for our teams.
“Tilson is full of genuine, down-to-earth people who are so great to work with,” said Emmalee. “I’m pretty early in my career, so I love having the opportunity to work with people who are willing to help me learn more about the industry and grow professionally. I learn something new every day.”
When asked what Women’s History Month means to her, Emmalee said, “It means a lot to me, especially as a woman in STEM. This month reminds me of the women before me who broke the barriers that made it possible for me to study engineering and feel supported and encouraged in a male-dominated field. While my current role is no longer engineering-specific, the skills I learned were so applicable in my later positions that I’ve dedicated a lot of my time to mentoring and volunteering for programs that encourage women in STEM.”
Outside of work, Emmalee enjoys watching sports, hiking, and exploring local coffee shops and restaurants. She recently started taking aerial classes (yoga, not towers), and is learning to ski. Emmalee is from Westfield, Indiana, and now lives in Fort Collins, Colorado. As a recent Purdue University graduate, she’s a big Purdue sports fan. Her favorite food is sushi, her favorite movie is Mamma Mia, and her favorite book is The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides.
Fun fact: Emmalee volunteers every week for the NAMI HelpLine, a mental health organization that provides resources and support for anyone struggling with a mental illness.
Thank you, Emmalee, for all your hard work! We’re so grateful to have you on the team.
