Welcome, Emily!

Remember at the beginning of summer when the left side of my brain, Morgan, left #TeamWebComm to work at the Sam Noble Museum?! Remember how her last day was on my birthday and how much I said I’d miss her?! I did and still do miss her but my worries didn’t last long once we started interviewing new Morgans for the position of Content Marketing Specialist.

Out of a large pool of super qualified candidates, we plucked a one Ms. Emily Katherine Tackett:


Part woman, part mythical serpent, Emily is a Gaylord College grad who earned a degree in professional writing. This not only makes me super self-conscious about my own writing (like, in the best possible way) but proves to be a VERY useful degree for someone who is writing content for a major brand on the daily. Prior to working with Web Comm, Emkins was a recruiter for OU Admissions and Recruitment.

Last week at Confluence my newly beloved Emily and longly beloved Morgan even met each other in person. I didn’t get to witness this momentous occasion but, I imagine it was lovely.

So, what is Emily’s job with #TeamWebComm?

Emily, as previously stated, is our new content specialist. This means she keeps content (feature stories, articles, news, press releases, etc) added to the official OU homepage (ou.edu), writes awesome OU-esque quizzes for me to post on social media, articles, feature stories, scripts for Hi5OU, keeps the campus calendar updated and much, much more. If it needs copy, Emily has it covered.


A rare Emily in her natural habitat.

  1. Welcome, Emily! I hope you enjoy the job!

    And if I might offer one suggestion: I think it’s time to throw the succulents out and use the planter (bowl) for chili. Lots and lots of chili.
