Sharon Emery

Sharon Emery struggles to speak — she has a severe stutter — but has nonetheless made a career – several careers, in fact – as a communicator.

First, she set her sights on being a reporter. After graduating from Wayne State University and earning her Master’s degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York City, she went to work at a small daily newspaper in Ohio.

She then taught journalism part-time at Michigan State University, while working on her doctorate and starting a family.

She returned to full-time work as an editor at the Lansing Bureau of what is now Mlive. Sharon spent most of her career there, including a year as a Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellow at the University of Michigan.

When the newspaper industry began to implode, she turned to public relations. She became vice president at Truscott Rossman in Lansing, and continues as a senior consultant there.

Sharon has since added “author” to her resume. Her memoir, “It’s Hard Being You, A Primer on Being Happy Anyway,” was named a 2023 Michigan Notable Book and she has spent the year speaking to audiences across the state.

Forging a career in communications was a battle, but she also struggled with other losses and limits. Luckily, it taught her a lot about life, which she is now sharing with others struggling to make their way.

New York Times bestselling author Lori Nelson Spielman calls Emery’s message “a gift to the world.”
