Emma is originally from the Vancouver area and relocated to Vancouver Island over 4 years ago. She’s always had a passion for working with people, and in 2014 she completed the Community Mental Health and Addictions Worker Certificate Program at Vancouver Island University. Having been personally affected by family members in addiction, she is grateful to be able to contribute to the recovery process at Cedars.
Witnessing patient transformation and being part of their journey is extremely rewarding for Emma and she also loves the First Nations component offered at Cedars. Emma plans to continue studying and developing her learning in the addictions field. In addition to working at Cedars, she also works part time and volunteers with several different programs, including a pregnancy outreach and youth program at the Duncan Aboriginal Friendship Centre.
