Emily was born and raised in the small town of Trail, BC, as the oldest of three siblings. She has always lived life to its fullest, and was involved with everything from highland dance to debate in between volunteering and taking a full academic schedule in her high school years.

Passionate about science, math and creative problem-solving, Emily moved to Calgary to pursue engineering. In 2019, Emily graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, specializing in Manufacturing, from the University of Calgary, as the outgoing two-time Team Captain of Schulich Off-Road, a student off-road vehicle engineering team.

Between doing odd-jobs and construction with her Dad, working as an operator in a smelter and then as an intern and designer in a campus machine shop, Emily has built an array of hands-on experience and an understanding of how engineering design and real-world applications come together. Emily is just beginning her engineering career, but chose to make the move to Surrey and join the team at Eteros so that she could delve deeper into the world of hands-on engineering.


If you were to tell one person “Thank You” for helping me become the person I am today, who would it be and what did they do?
Brandon Ferguson, for acting as an academic, professional and personal mentor to me throughout my degree, especially when it came to leading the team.
Do you have any hobbies?
I spent the last 4 years of my life dedicated to a team that designs and builds off-road race vehicles for a student engineering competition, and I love getting hands-on with design and manufacturing, so I guess you could say I’m a bit of a gearhead.
What is one word you would use to describe yourself as a child?
Creative. I started painting as soon as I could hold a brush and I spent a lot of time baking and crafting and exploring fine arts with my Mom.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Germany. Its next on my bucket list for the engineering, history, landscape and culture.
What kind of music do you listen to?
A pretty eclectic mix. I’ll go from Tina Guo to Guns N’ Roses.
When are you the happiest?
When I’m skiing, swimming or sweating hard at the gym.
