Emily is a fourth-year Child and Youth Care (CYC) student here at UVic and is currently completing the final term of their degree. Before entering into CYC, she completed her Early Learning and Care at Camosun where she specialized in Inclusive Care and went on to work as a preschool teacher and support worker.

During her studies and work, she has discovered a passion for advocacy, especially towards inclusivity and accessibility. Emily is very excited to be here at CanAssist and is looking forward to gaining greater knowledge and experience in empowering youth in the community.

During her downtime, she enjoys playing with her two cats, doing yoga, listening to all types of music, hiking, and stargazing.
