Emily Goodstein

Emily P. Goodstein combines her love of digital media with her extensive grassroots organizing background to help clients scale quickly and sustainably. Emily’s work helps clients fulfill their missions, leveraging a multichannel approach to meld offline and online tools, including social media strategy, web and email outreach, fundraising, user experience consulting, and content marketing. Emily brings over 15 years of nonprofit advocacy, fundraising, marketing, and organizing experience to her work. Before striking out on her own, she served as a Client Success Manager for Blackbaud (previously Convio), where she empowered nonprofit clients to achieve their online fundraising and advocacy goals. During her work at Blackbaud, Goodstein managed a wide range of accounts, including internationally-focused relief and aid groups, local and regional food banks, and DC-based advocacy organizations. Prior to her move to the private sector, Emily was Director of Student Outreach for the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), an interfaith coalition working to preserve reproductive freedom. While at RCRC, Goodstein led a nationwide movement of students and young adults reclaiming their faith and pro-choice values through a series of campus events and skills trainings. An activist at heart, Emily’s interest in organizing and online outreach was sparked while she was a student at The George Washington University (GW). She earned a bachelor of arts in human services at GW and started the university’s chapter of Planned Parenthood, Voices for Choices. Emily was the youngest recipient of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington’s Champions of Choice Award, and served as a member of the board of directors and chair of the organization’s young professionals and nominating committees. Emily has been featured on NPR and WTOP, in the Washington Post and the Washington Jewish Week, and on DCist and the Huffington Post. She is a graduate of Selah, the Rockwood Leadership Training Program’s collaboration with Bend the Arc, and an active member of the Women’s Information Network. When she’s not Instagramming or updating Facebook, Emily can be found behind the camera. In 2013, she completed the photography for the Washington, DC Chef’s Table cookbook — using her lens to document the city’s dynamic food culture. Now in its third printing, Chef’s Table includes images and recipes from over 60 restaurants in the DC area. Goodstein is currently working on a new book, Great Food Finds, Washington, expected to hit shelves in summer 2017. She also specializes in photographing birth, joining women for home, birth center, or hospital births to capture the day their little ones arrive.
