Emma: Canada

Updated: Mar 25, 2020


Where were you born and raised?


I was born at the Brockville General Hospital in Brockville, Ontario.  I grew up in downtown Brockville, up the street from the armories.  When I was 14 years old, we moved to Lily Bay, in the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley.  I consider myself a born and raised “Brockvillian” – other than moving away for university I’ve lived here my entire life.


Do you have any personal/cultural traditions you like to celebrate?


My parents are both of British and Scottish descent, so we celebrate very traditional holidays, Thanksgiving being my favourite. Coming from Nova Scotia, my mom taught us traditional Celtic song and dance growing up, so at holidays, singing often occurs!


What do you love about living in Leeds Grenville?


I love the small town feel, the St. Lawrence river, and all the local activities! We are an hour drive from Canada’s capital, and within short driving distance of all the eclectic surrounding communities!


How do you like to spend your free time?


When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking, hanging out with my friends, spending time with my family and most importantly eating. I’m a huge foodie, so things like the local farmers market on the weekend are definitely a must.
