Emma studied AAT whilst working at Benson Wood & Co before moving on to Anderson Barrowcliff during which time she qualified as a Chartered Accountant. In July 2008 Emma went to work at PD Ports as Group Financial Accountant and continues her career there as Group Accountant.
Emma enjoys keeping fit, reading, travelling and football. As a Middlesbrough FC season ticket holder, Emma's favourite thing about the area is "The mighty Boro of course!"
When asked about her motivation to join the Tees Valley Community Foundation's board, Emma's response was; "After learning about TVCF as a Trustee of a small local charity who applied for funding with them, I found it difficult to say no when I was asked if I would be interested in being a Trustee. The work TVCF does is of a very high standard, and is much needed to a lot of smaller charities in the area. Furthermore the team are fabulous, helpful, friendly and professional. I look forward to playing my part in the continued growth and development of the Foundation."
