Program & Operations Director
Emily was born in Chile during a curfew and an earthquake. Ever since, life has been anything but normal. From South America to Scotland, she spent her childhood building dens, rolling around in the mud and camping. Her life has always been centred around the outdoors.
In 2012, she supported Dave Cornthwaite by running operations while stand-up paddle boarding 1001 miles down the Lower Missouri – having never stand-up paddle boarded before. She spent 60 nights sleeping blissfully on the banks of the river.
In 2013, Emily kayaked the length of Britain as crew captain on Sean Conway’s big swim. She spent 4 1/2 months running operations as well as kayaking the coast from England and Wales across to Ireland and back to Scotland, through storms, darkness and bitter cold. Before stepping in her kayak at Lands End, she had never kayaked before, let alone in the ocean.
Emily has years of experience across operations, production, publishing and project management. She was managing editor at Pomp Magazine until 2013. And has now launched an adventure project called Avaunt, alongside her operations work for Pangaea.
