Emily has been involved with EWBNZ since 2013, working in various roles throughout the educational programmes EWBNZ offers as well as in general management. She is currently mentoring and supporting the student led Humanitarian Engineering conference team.
Emily has always had a passion for people, this is what lead her to study mechanical engineering at the University of Canterbury. Since graduation, she has worked at Beca firstly in Wellington, then Auckland before moving to Yangon, Myanmar. This journey to Myanmar has given Emily new insight on how to effectively lead a diverse group of people as well as applying engineering in a broad range of contexts.
Emily is hoping to broaden her impact by completing her MBA – giving her the skills to be conversant in financial matters as well as technical.
