About

Emma standing in front of a canyon

Hello! My name is Emma, I’m a Front-End Web Developer with a background in adventure travel currently based in Toronto. While I had a variety of jobs in my career in the travel industry, it was building and creating trips where I found my passion for improving websites to be functional, beautiful, and user-friendly. When I’m not coding you can find me petting dogs, going hiking, and travelling to places near and far.
