Emily  Witt

"The Reformer "

Managing Director

“Stay gold Ponyboy, stay gold.” – My best friend from high school and I still say that to each other instead of saying goodbye.

Sometimes, it just might take being stuck between a rock and a hard place to make our best life choices. Take Emily for example - she decided to be a Legal Recruiter at the rock climbing wall.  Her climbing partner happened to be an attorney at a top law firm and suggested Emily might enjoy it. She gave it a shot and humbly debuted her legal recruiting career at a little Manhattan firm by the name of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. Maybe you’ve heard of it?  
At Wachtell, Emily learned what it takes to make it to the pinnacle of the legal profession working alongside some of the best attorneys in the country: you need to be adaptable, know how to stand your ground, have great people skills and be a commanding presence.  But Wachtell associates have the same big picture questions as everyone else – what do I want to be when I grow up? It was no surprise that the associates were drawn to Emily - even strangers on the subway seem to want to come to her for advice (some of her closest acquaintances have been made that way). Finding herself the go-to career advice person at Wachtell, it wasn’t a big leap for Emily to make a career of it and become a legal recruiter.

Emily manages to be loyal and dedicated, while being a total thrill-seeker. In other words, she’s found her home at Whistler. She is a firm believer in following your inner voice when making any decision. She has a knack for trusting her instincts with people, making her a natural matchmaker. Always on the go, either locally or abroad, Emily stays centered through connecting with others.  Whether discussing the pursuit of your dreams or the path to physical wellness (she’s also a fully certified Pilates Instructor!), Emily’s in for the ride.
What is your dream job? “Host of a travel TV show. I LOVE an adventure and just always want to be traveling, that’s why I don’t mind getting lost.”
Favorite Place to Travel: “Anywhere I’ve never been. The thrill is in the unknown.”
What movie is most about you? Every John Hughes movie.”
