Emily Tavoulareas

Founder and Principal

Mosaik Collective

Emily uses design and technology to make things–products, experiences, programs, policies, organizations–work better for people. From working with young entrepreneurs in Saudi Arabia, to helping the Federal Government better serve Veterans, her career has been spent understanding what people need and how to most effectively provide it to them. For the past five years she worked with the Department of Veterans Affairs and the White House to modernize the way the federal government delivers services to the public. From co-founding the first agency-level team of the U.S. Digital Service to serving as Senior Policy Advisory to the U.S. Chief Technology Officer at the White House, she has worked to modernize and transform some of the most complex and critical public services–and the teams that deliver them.

She is currently building her own venture, teaching at Columbia University, and attempting to manage twin toddlers.
