Emily Cosentino


Bright Light, Big Stars


Emily Cosentino, whose high school football team narrowly avoided being called the Needham Pansies, has hit The Independent like the proverbial whirlwind. Our mild-mannered promotions manager sailed through the prep for Ethan Stewart’s Paris talk at Antioch shortly after she arrived and organized our Meet the Makers party to a T. “I love parties,” she said. “I met the New York restaurant guy [who directed The Missing Ingredient] … he was so excited to be here.” The Massachusetts native — her team chose the town’s other industry, rockets — is now stirring up our annual St. Patrick’s Day Stroll and a new collaboration with Brewhouse. “There’ll be a release party for that,” she beamed.
