She’s drawn to the unknown and captivated by new experiences, always looking for an adventure off the beaten path. 'Type 2 Fun' is a big part of what drives Emily to get outside, She says: “There's nothing more satisfying than sitting down at the end of the day, muscles aching, bruises and scrapes everywhere, knowing that you did something BIG. The outdoors have not only brought peace but so much confidence to my life. There's truly nothing like pushing your limits and seeing what you're physically and mentally capable of.”
