Emily was born in 1989 and grew up in Wiveliscombe, attending the local primary and secondary schools. She was a keen swimmer and competed in the local swimming galas yearly. She went on to continue her education at Somerset College, where she studied early years and gained a diploma. Alongside her studies she started a part time job at Oake Manor Golf Club before becoming full time.
In 2010 an opportunity to join her dad and great uncle in the family business arose, first as an administrator before qualifying as a member of the British Institute of Embalmers, and then arranging and conducting funerals, hopefully leading her to a Diploma in Funeral Directing.
In 2016 she married Daniel and enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and catching up on the soaps.
