Emma

Emma is an army veteran, a mechatronics engineer by trade, and an adventurer at heart. The Swedish mountains was her childhood playground, and somewhere in between chasing reindeer for photographs and her parents bribing her with chocolate to ski another mile, mountain life became a part of her. All grown up (questionable), she takes an interest in self-development, group dynamics and leadership. In every-day life, she gets her daily dose of endorphins through cross-country skiing and trail-running. In 2019, she'll attempt a NOBO thru-hike of the CDT.
