Emily Howard joined Northwestern Mutual in 2015 as a Financial Representative and focuses her financial planning practice primarily on attorneys, law offices, small businesses, and the families of Columbia.  Prior to joining Northwestern Mutual, she practiced law in the Columbia and Lexington areas of South Carolina and draws heavily on this experience as she works closely with each client to diagnose and solve both offensive and defensive needs.  A Columbia native, Emily is determined to see the Midlands area flourish and strongly believes that proper financial planning alongside the right strategist is the key to such success.

Emily received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of South Carolina, where she majored in Journalism and Mass Communications.  From there, she attended the University of South Carolina School of Law and graduated in 2006.  Currently, Emily serves on the Board of Directors for the Columbia Kiwanis Club and also volunteers as a youth arbitrator in the Richland County Youth Arbitration Program.  As an attorney, Emily also remains a member of the South Carolina Bar and the South Carolina Women Lawyer’s Association.
