Emily grew up as a grape picker on her family’s vineyard in beautiful Blenheim. Her small and nimble fingers quickly earned her the reputation of the fastest picker in the Marlborough region. Seeking bigger thrills in her teen years, Emily applied her hand-eye coordination skills into the world of sport and became a master of hockey. Emily’s ambition to become an Instagram star soon lead her to swapping a hockey stick for control stick in an aeroplane. Emily has been with Wings Over Whales for over two years now and is loving her time here. She believes the best selfies will be from the cockpit of a jet aircraft so one day hopes to progress to the airlines.
