Emily M.

Emily is 31 and lives in a pretty city in southeastern Ontario, though she would never deny that she grew up in a northern mining town. Her career as a fundraiser used to define her, now she tries to focus on being good to herself, her animals and the people in her life who treat her well. 
 
Her favourite things include digging into a new book with a glass of wine by her side, saying hello to strangers on the street who have an open face, eating cheese, and walking her dog with a soy latte in her hand. She wishes she could say that she is an avid paddle boarder but she’s only done it once, though she really enjoyed it. 
 
Her animals Penelope and Gracie light up her life every day, but Emily tries not to be too cheesy about how much they mean to her.
