Emily Akin

Change Management Specialist

Emily has served the WSU community since 2017, and the Modernization Team since 2019. Her role as Change Management Specialist focuses on helping the community navigate the exciting and challenging changes that the implementation of Workday presents. She prizes communication, empathy, and creativity, and approaches her role with Modernization with these values in mind.

A born-and-raised Pacific Northwesterner, Emily resides in Moscow, Idaho. She’s an avid farmer’s marketer and antique enthusiast. She is also a practicing artist and writer, and can be found directing plays with the region’s colleges and community theatres. When she’s not making art or change, she is fly fishing on the Clearwater.
