Emery was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the daughter of an aspiring actress from Charlottesville, Virginia and an advertising executive who worked in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.

After graduation she studied at the Circle in the Square Theatre School for a year, then began to audition.

She was nominated for the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play for her performances in the latter two.

Emery's film credits include A Map of the World, Unfaithful, The Night Listener, and Margot at the Wedding. On television she had a recurring role on Ed and has made guest appearances on Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Third Watch, and Damages.
