A former journalist, Ema is an award-winning entrepreneur: a multiple recipient of Canada’s Top 100 Female Entrepreneurs from PROFIT magazine, as well as leading her company to the Profit 500 list in 2013 of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies. She was also the recipient of the President’s Award in recognition of her Public Policy work to benefit fellow WBE members by WBE Canada. She is an author and speaker who has conducted numerous interviews for international television and print mediums.

Her personal passions of adventure and philanthropy play out in her business. Each year, her team donates the equal sum of their personal bonuses to a rotating charity of their choice. When not at work, Ema can be found volunteering with school children in Costa Rica, surfing in Barbados, or climbing mountains. Her latest personal project is to climb the Seven Summits - the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. In October 2017, she summitted the Carstensz Pyramid, located in the jungles of Papua, Indonesia and is on record as being the first Portuguese woman to have even summited this peak! It is considered the most technically challenging, and very difficult to approach, with 5-7 days traversing the jungle to arrive at base camp.
