Emily Gassmann graduated from the University of Illinois with her BSN; She began as an RN at the University of Illinois. Emily continued her work at the University of Utah, after moving here to pursue her hobbies which include skiing, mountain biking, road biking, kayaking, you name it.

Emily was an RN for twenty years before slowly picking up small catering events to pursue another hobby of hers – cooking. She opened Em’s Restaurant twenty years ago – a restaurant nestled into the heart of Capitol Hill. In November of 2018, she partnered with Elaine Sayer and Milo Carrier to create an afternoon café next door to Em’s called The Dayroom. Her goal with this project is to offer a comfortable and casual day-space to compliment her evening space.
