Emily Gerson-Saines

NU alum Emily Gerson-Saines is a talent manager who manages the careers of actors such as Hayden Panettierre, Laura Benanti, Vanessa Williams, Cynthia Nixon and Kristen Bell. Emily was recently back on campus to speak to the Northwestern Women's Filmmaker Alliance. Gerson-Saines said she currently manages six NU alumni, hires NU interns, and donates to the university.

"(A degree from NU) isn't necessarily a guarantee of anything, but it's a guaranteed entree to a discussion about things, and you never know where things will lead you," she said.
