Managing Editor

Emily Laskowski

As a native Austinite and University of Texas grad, Emily Laskowski says her proudest moment was the time she high-fived Kevin Durant before a Texas football game. But this D Custom managing editor has a lot more to brag about than that. In her eight-plus years of editorial experience, she’s collaborated with organizations spanning size, industry, and region and dipped her toes in just about every communications role that exists, from editor of Austin Woman magazine to deputy director of communications for the lieutenant governor of Texas. In the process, she’s spent many hours perfecting and polishing not only the writing, but also the ideas of C-suite executives, elected officials, community leaders, and countless freelance contributors. When she’s not enjoying the fast-paced agency lifestyle, you can find Emily, her husband, Scott, and their dog, Dobby, on the hunt for the best Tex-Mex restaurant in Dallas (suggestions welcome) — and getting to know their new hometown in the process.
