Emily Allison-Hearn is the Communications Coordinator for Open Table Nashville. She handles social media, website updates, media requests, and pretty much anything else that is thrown at her! When she is not doing communications work for OTN, Emily is also a spoken word poet and travels the country performing her poetry at churches, schools, conferences, music festivals, and anywhere else poetry is heard and enjoyed. She is also a sitting board member of East Nashville Hope Exchange, an East-Nashville based nonprofit that works to strengthen the literacy of children struggling to read at grade level. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga, terrible reality television, and a good protest. Emily lives in East Nashville with her spouse Billy, two cats and a puppy.
