A native Torontonian, Emily has a diverse professional background ranging from financial services in “the big smoke” to sheep shearing in New Zealand. Living in New Zealand opened Emily’s eyes to the deep significance of the ocean to indigenous cultures and she has since felt drawn to the sea.
After completing her political science education at the University of Guelph, and armed with a vision to make a positive impact on the environment around her, Emily began her administrative career within the non-profit sector. She has held administrative positions with the Toronto International Film Festival, The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and Tides Canada.
Outside of the office, Emily is an active member of the Toronto Roller Derby’s Board of Directors. She also competes internationally in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association with the Toronto Roller Derby All-Stars.
