Auditioned for a role in Parks and Recreation (2009), a comedy series launched by the creators of The Office (2005). She did not receive the part, but received a call back to audition for a supporting role in "The Office" as Erin Hannon, a receptionist/secretary who replaced the character of Pam Beesly Halpert when Pam left Dunder Mifflin to join the Michael Scott Paper Co. Kemper was cast in the role and started appearing in the show in April 2009. Although the character was originally intended for 4 episodes, the producers were impressed with Kemper and signed her as a regular in the sixth season.
A contributing writer for the satirical newspaper "The Onion", she also has been published in "McSweeney's", the literary journal founded by Dave Eggers.
Played field hockey at Princeton in the 1999 season, though she claims she sat on the bench "roughly 97%" of the time. Her field hockey team went to the national championship in her freshman year, but she quit the team in later years to focus on theater.
While attending Princeton, she was a member of Quipfire!, a renowned improvisational comedy group, and also the Princeton Triangle Club, a touring musical comedy theater troupe.
Attended Princeton University, graduating in 2002 with a degree in English. She subsequently studied English for a year at Oxford University.

She is the granddaughter of Mildred Lane Kemper, the namesake of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum at Washington University (St. Louis, Missouri), for which the family donated $5 million.
Went to John Burroughs School in St. Louis where former alumnus Jon Hamm was her drama teacher.
I've never had prejudice against me because of being a woman in comedy, I've never felt any sort of unfairness because of that - but I do think it is naive to think that it doesn't exist.
It's interesting because with a lot of people who I've met in comedy, it seems not to matter what your background is. In terms of formal schooling - I feel like that's a nineteenth century term - but in terms of where you went to high school or college, or wherever, all that really is irrelevant, I have found, in comedy.
My painting teacher in high school used to say, 'I can't paint like I want to, but through practice I'll get better.' But I don't think that's true. I think sometimes you just can't paint.
Most New Yorkers want to look amazing, and they want you to understand that they look amazing, but they also want you to stop staring at them.
New York is like the weirdest city in the United States, in a great way, and Los Angeles is probably more similar to most of America.
One nice thing that I have discovered about Los Angeles is the enthusiasm with which people dress.
Growing up, I had one very specific idea of what a wedding should be, and that was the wedding of Fraulein Maria and Captain von Trapp in 'The Sound of Music.'
I need to make sure that when I'm running out to the drugstore I'm not wearing a Biore strip or something. Not that I expect anyone to recognize me, but on the off chance they do, I just don't want to embarrass myself.
I want to be a morning-talk-show host. I love Kelly Ripa's job. She gets to live in New York and has this amazing job hosting a talk show.
I wrote comedy sketches in college.
If you're going to plan a wedding, then a certain amount of suffering is not a choice.
Improv is mostly what I've studied.
In Los Angeles, people dress with the deep and earnest hope that people will do nothing but stare at them.
Los Angeles survives on that which is unpredictable. The unexpected courses through its very veins.
I can't do impressions.
I guess it's easier to think badly and then be pleasantly surprised.
