Her curling journey began at the age of 10 when she reluctantly joined a Sunday youth curling league. Despite her initial hesitation, she stuck with it for three to four years.

Representing the Golden Hawks, she achieved notable success, including a fifth-place finish in the U Sports tournament and recognition as a first-team All-Canadian.

Additionally, she secured second place with Team Grace Cave at the Canadian Junior Cup during the holidays, earning herself a curling trip to Switzerland.

Prior to pursuing curling, Emily explored various other sports to discover her interests.
