About Us

Field Day is a real estate development consulting firm that helps people who are not real estate experts manage their projects. We know how to guide you from concept, through construction, and into operations—on time, in budget, and with ease.

Founded in 2010, we are a 100% woman-owned business. We work with developers, Calmnonprofits, foundations, business owners and government agencies.

Our business is built on the belief that a big real estate project can be a rewarding experience, rather than a stressful one. We’re invested in your success and we give it our all to get the job done. You’ll be in good hands, because it’s what we do every day!

EMILY MEYERS, Executive Coordinator

As Field Day Development’s Executive Coordinator, Emily does more than schedule meetings. With more than 10 years of administrative experience, she’s helpful, organized, and task driven. She strives for perfection, and loves going the extra mile on the little details that make things special.

With Restorative as a top strength, Emily often finds herself thinking “I could figure that out.” This comes in handy daily at Field Day Development. In her time here so far, Emily has fixed a broken lateral file, sold 2 cars, and picked a lock (with permission).  She is excited to see what new puzzles each day brings.

In addition to her work at Field Day, Emily is a key member of the Maha Festival production team. In this role, she prepares and plans the festival year round, communicating with tour managers, performers, security and stage technicians to ensure the safety and comfort of artists and their crews.

When she’s not taking care of Field Day, Emily enjoys eating cheese pizza with her boyfriend, Neil, shopping at estate sales with her family, and going on walks with her rescue dog, Curry.
