She enjoys the opportunity to pass her knowledge on to those beginning their careers through her involvement in the teaching programme at the University of Queensland.
Emily loves outdoor sports so when she isn’t at work, she is usually outside, enjoying Toowoomba’s beautiful parks and surroundings with her husband Gareth and their dog.
