Emily grew up in the prairies but developed a love of the ocean through visiting family on our beautiful coast. She loves animal care, ecosystem restoration and has spent time volunteering at different rescue centres, including MARS wildlife rescue. While she was a student she worked for our research branch, Coastal Collaborative Science. After graduating from the University of Victoria with a BSc in Marine Biology, she worked as an educator for Seaquaria! She has loved her time here and is thrilled to continue her work educating the public on our beloved Salish Sea.
