Emily was born and raised in the Yukon, but her family moved many years ago from Basel, Switzerland to Canada. Because Emily’s family originated from Switzerland, she has had the opportunity to be raised in a multilingual environment which has resulted in her knowledge of high German, Swiss German and French. After completing a German exchange in the summer of 2019, she graduated with a Bachelors of Art in German Language Culture and Psychology with Honors from the University of Ottawa. Currently, Emily is enrolled at Medicine Hat College working on her Speech Language Pathologist Assistant diploma via distance learning. She is very excited to expand her knowledge in linguistics via speech language pathology. Emily’s hobbies and interests include horseback riding, sports, coaching gymnastics and riding her motorbike!
