Emily Pietras

Associate Editor


“I enjoy working with our team as we strive to deliver important, engaging and informative stories to our readers every week.” 

Emily joined the Community Journals team in May 2016 as the associate editor of Upstate Business Journal and Greenville Journal. As associate editor, she copy edits all publications, assists the design and editorial teams on press days and writes for UBJ and GJ.

Emily graduated from Clemson University in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in sociology. She began her career in the nonprofit sector as an administrative and program services assistant at Make-A-Wish® South Carolina. Following that, Emily worked at Tempus magazine, a luxury lifestyle publication for aviation company Tempus Jets, as assistant editor.

When she is not working, Emily enjoys reading, cooking, attending concerts, practicing yoga and spending time with her two dogs. As a native of northeast Ohio, Emily is a devoted fan of all Cleveland sports teams, and you can often find her yelling in front of a television during football season when the Browns play.
