Emma is a beginning teacher living in Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland. Before becoming a teacher, she studied and worked in communications.
Outside of work, Emma volunteers as a companion, social media co-ordinator and is on the national fundraising committee of Camp Quality.
In her free time, Emma surfs and plays solo cornet in the North Shore Academy Brass Band. Her interest in Asia was piqued through short travels in Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, as well as working at the Asia New Zealand Foundation.
Emma is excited to be joining the Leadership Network to learn more about herself as a leader and about Asia, hoping to bring back some of these experiences to her classroom.
