Emily Shim

Client Services Associate

After earning her Bachelor’s degree in Advertising from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Emily worked for a public relations firm in Chicago, handling social media and influencer relations for consumer brands. Following two years of living in the city, she made the decision to move back to the suburbs and joined the team at Forthright Financial in our Sycamore office. As the newest member of the team, Emily plays an important role in ensuring our clients receive an excellent experience, whether that’s through building professional relationships or assisting with any follow-up needs after review appointments.

When she’s not in the office, Emily spends her free time recipe testing, photographing and writing for her plant-based food blog called Gathered and Glazed, on which she posts healthy recipes for people to make and enjoy. She also loves traveling to new places and trying new restaurants, spending time outdoors and watching movies with her family.
