PROFILE

Emma is a director of the Corporate Nature board representing Cape York NRM where I have been a director since 2013 (current chair). She arrived in Cape York eleven years ago, married a Cape York cattleman and since then has brought four children into the world. Originally a psychologist, Emma is now a teacher working in Weipa and around Cape York. She teaches her children at home as well as completing business responsibilities. Emma’s husband’s family has owned Wolverton Station for forty-six years and her father-in-law sat on the council before retiring. She enjoys participating in committees for the long term benefit of the Cape and has been involved in Cape York Sustainable Futures, Coen Chamber of Commerce, and is currently secretary for Cape York Live Export Group. Emma contributed to the establishment of the Cape York NRM organisation through participating in the steering committee with other current board members. She is now pursuing further studies through the University of Queensland in Agricultural Science, through a scholarship. Emma is committed to the Cape for the next thirty years and intends on working hard to ensure a sustainable future for her children. It is her home, her world, her life and she loves it.
