Before joining Wollens, Emma completed her training contact with the large national firm, qualifying into their commercial property department in Manchester. Whilst there she was selected for a secondment to the Commonwealth Games Committee to finalise the commercial contracts to put on the games from advertising to suppliers to venues.
During this time she married her husband James, who is from Devon, and they made the move to the South West 17 years ago and started a family-“some of the best decisions Ive ever made!” she says
She worked since then continuously for another large regional firm based in North Devon as a partner in their commercial department for south west and national clients
When not working, Emma spends time having fun with her family and enjoys most sports but particularly those involving water from surfing, boating on the River Dart, swimming. She also enjoys skiing (and snowboarding whilst her knees allow her!).
