Episode 12: Elizabeth Emmanuel

 In How I Got Here with Dave Fiore

In this episode, host Dave Fiore speaks with Elizabeth Emmanuel, the CEO of the Tallahassee Downtown Improvement Authority. The Tallahassee native started her career path on a field trip to a funeral home while at Tallahassee Community College, where she was offered a job on the spot by her future mentor. But it was a tragic personal loss during her time as a funeral director that led to the realization that she needed a break and the chance to pursue other opportunities. While her career has taken some turns, it is her caring for people – whether mourning the loss of a loved one or pursuing opportunities to engage in their community – that has made Elizabeth a respected and influential leader.
