MLA for Whitehorse Centre
Emily (she/her) grew up in the Yukon and is proud to call it home. Emily studied neuroscience at Dalhousie University and then speech-language pathology at McGill University. She then worked for years with young children and their families as a speech-language pathologist, first in B.C. and then in the Yukon at the Child Development Centre. Mostly recently prior to being elected MLA, Emily held the role of executive director at Teegatha’Oh Zheh which supports Yukon residents with developmental disabilities and was President of Queer Yukon Society.
In her spare time, she plays hockey, makes music and films, and hangs out with her dog Griffon. Emily knows that as a territory, we can do even better for people. She’s excited to take her experience fighting for people to the legislature.
