Emily Ergas

Account Executive

Emily is a Dallas-raised, California-born city girl. Always curious, she is fascinated by languages and the way people use them to express themselves. With more than six years agency experience, Emily excels in client relations along with the creativity and tenacity needed for a successful media relations plan.

At Breakaway PR, Emily is the lead account manager for numerous clients including Georgetown Convention & Visitors Bureau, Hilton Austin, Texas 4000 for Cancer, Blue Genie Art Bazaar, Austin Modern Home Tour and Waller Creek Conservancy. She is also a co-manager on We Are Blood and co-manages Breakaway’s internship program among other responsibilities.

Emily graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio with a B.A. in Communications, Spanish and International Relations. After a year with a PR firm in San Antonio, she went abroad to become fluent in Spanish, spending a year in Santiago, Chile, and a year in Madrid, Spain. Although she loved the overseas experience, she was ready to return to the U.S. to re-establish a career in
public relations.

When not working in PR or learning a graphic design program, Emily is usually planning a new travel adventure, eating breakfast tacos or trying to learn French. She also regularly volunteers with the Victory after-school tutoring program in Austin.
