After a short trip back home to sunny Queensland, Australia, she has returned to enjoy her second working holiday visa surrounded by the people and beautiful scenery of the Bow Valley that she grew to love during her first visit.

With over ten years experience in medical reception, Emma has also recently branched out into radiology administration and enjoys learning new fields of interest. Emma enjoys hiking, traveling and reading a good book in the mountains.
