Post college, Emily returned to NYC to study acting with Susan Batson, then moved to Los Angeles where she has played paramedic Doris Pickman on ER since the show's second episode.Emily co-created, wrote, produced and starred in several short and feature films, some with her brother Andrew (Counting, South Main), some with her longtime collaborator Julie Delpy (Blah, Blah, Blah) and some with both of them Looking for Jimmy (2002) and Careful, all of which went on to have impressive festival runs.
