About Emily Palm: Originally from New York, Emily relocated to DC to pursue a Bachelors Degree at American University. She picked up a hostess job at the Old Ebbitt Grill during her freshman year. What started as a part-time college job turned into a career when Emily’s zealous work ethic and acute attention to detail were recognized and she was promoted to Event Coordinator after graduation. Quickly learning the ropes, Emily moved up to Event Manager at the Old Ebbitt Grill and The Hamilton. After a short stint running events at Clyde’s of Gallery Place, she returned to The Hamilton in 2015 to take the reins in her current role as Event Manager. Emily loves her kitten, Hal, binging British TV, and takes great pride in working for the company a week longer than John Grace.
