"Emily is not only a gifted graphic designer, but brings unique health expertise to her work. I credit her entirely for moving our Elements of Mental Wellness project to its current, extremely well received, state.

This rare combination of wellness knowledge and inspired design skill makes Emily one of the most valuable resources our partnership has ever worked with. "

- Sabine Mendez

Chilliwack Healthier Community Coordinator

As the story goes, at 2 years old I took a piece of paper, scissors, and tape, and created a 3D house with a roof, windows, and door, taping it to bottom of the wall as a gift for my baby sister. From a very early age I was able to easily envision my end goal, then put the pieces together to make it happen - creating beauty where others didn’t see the vision.

Though I have experience in conceptual design, my natural inclination and first love is for creative-but-structured documents such as manuals, reports, proposals, and printed media.


Over the years I have worked with First Nations and in healthcare, managing projects and allowing me to blend my artistic skills with my other personal interests.

Spending the first years of my life in the rugged and remote Northern BC town of Bella Coola has strongly shaped my pioneer heart with a tremendous passion for simple living (or make-work projects as my husband might say!). 

I spend a tremendous amount of time at the ocean. If you're looking for me, that's likely where I’ll be with my husband Zenon, 13-year old precocious son Rohan, and 3 year old animated daughter River.

I honour and express our gratitude for living and working on the traditional lands of the Liǥwildaʼx̱w, and the unceded territories of the Kwakwaka’wakw, Coast Salish and Nuu-Chah-Nulth peoples.
