At the age of 6, Emma decided that she wanted to learn to do a cartwheel. She quickly realized how much she loved gymnastics, and soon began training in all four artistic disciplines. At age nine, she began competing at a provincial level, and at 10, she placed in all 4 events at the Ontario Provincial Championships, including 2nd place on floor, and 3rd place All Round in the province. Emma decided to focus on the tumbling aspect of the sport, and connected with Jenna Stamp and her power tumbling program at Gymnastics Energy in St. Catharines. After several years of intense training and pounding, Emma was experiencing significant difficulties with plantar fasciitis and knee pain, which was preventing her from performing at her full potential. Emma competed in the first provincial qualifier of the year, and at that time, qualified for the Ontario championships. At the second qualifier, Emma placed first, and was offered one of two positions with Team Ontario to represent the province at an international competition being held in Utah. Along with the offer, Emma's score was high enough that she clenched a spot to travel with Ontario to New Brunswick for the Eastern Championships. 6 weeks before championships, Emma broke her wrist.
Emma will be performing with Cirque du Soleil at the Opening Ceremonies at this summer's Pan Am Games in Toronto, ON.
