Like many young girls growing up in Québec, Emilie dreamed of becoming a figure skater, but she ended up becoming a professional climber instead.
Those close to her swear she is actually the reincarnation of a circus monkey. Emilie’s ability to comfortably hang upside down at a crux makes her belayers exhausted and pumped just watching her. Her tenacity is always inspiring, especially when she sends, which happens often.
Happy-go-lucky, Emilie’s outlook on life is nothing short of endearingly earnest.
Emily is cool, calm and confident even in the most stressful situations; whether it be a thunderstorm or a stuck rope, she finds a solution.
