Emily loves spending time in the great outdoors - from running the hills, cycling and hiking - her happy place is anywhere the sun is shining and there is an adventure to be had. She enjoys volunteering for the Summit Road Society, meeting some amazing people along the way and doing her bit to help 'sustain and preserve' her new backyard. Emily's from Cornwall so exploring New Zealand, her new home away from home, in the campervan she and her partner converted, are the best kinds of weekends (especially if they happen to be driving past a vineyard.).
Emily loves the opportunity working at Rātā provides to learn about the mahi of the many organisations across our funding regions, witnessing first-hand the depth and breadth of that work and the real impact being made in our communities. She also enjoys being able to support the Community Investment Team to do their best work, and watch them empower communities to do their best work too.
