Starting her early career as a production manager in the television industry, Emily developed a keen ability to manage complex schedules and resources to produce media broadcasts in challenging circumstances.
After nearly a decade in the media industry, she found herself at a crossroads between a job that she loved with a desire to contribute to a greater cause. This ultimately led Emily to join Compassion Australia, which is where her passion for supporting and empowering those who are less fortunate was ignited.
During her time at Compassion, she was responsible for leading groups of supporters to visit the work Compassion is undertaking in some of the most remote, and challenging regions across the world. Emily saw first-hand the difficulties that women face, and how empowering women can lead generational change in families and communities.
