Emma graduated from Edinburgh University in 2008 with a Masters in Ancient Greek. She started her career building the global CSR & events department at the Investment Management Company, Winton Capital.
In 2014, she moved to head up the business development & operations at TwitRocket, a small tech start up based in Old St. The company re-branded at the start of 2015 to Fifty Technology Ltd, a high level technology consultancy and service business. Alongside this, in July 2015 she founded Start Ups & Vino, a networking hub for bright, young stars of small business.
Her passion for philanthropy was ignited in 2004, whilst working in Northern Ghana with a small human rights charity, Afrikids, for which she is now an ambassador.
She is also a trustee for Inner Voices, a musical charity aiming to further the musical abilities and opportunities of London comprehensive students.
In November 2013, Emma qualified as a yoga alliance teacher, further developing her practice by completing the Warriors at Ease training in the Bahamas in Spring 2015, a programme dedicated to providing yoga to ex military.
Through this training, she began working with Frederique Sardais, founding member of Adaptive Yoga UK. Together with Louise Edwards & Jo Duffin, fellow founding members, they will be working towards the goal of providing access to yoga for those with mind/body injury in the community throughout the UK.
Emma is also a liveryman at Merchant Taylors Company.
