Emily started her successful Irish Dancing career at the age of six years. At the age she entered her first competition and danced the reel & jig. She placed first in both. From then on her love for Irish Dancing and competition has grown and continues to grow. In the following years Emily worked her way from Beginner to Champion Status always nurturing the younger dancers with help and encouragement.

As a youth Emily danced in many shows. She has opened for The Wolftones, Brendan Grace and Norwegian Cruise Lines. She appeared on The Today Show and Fox & Friends, representing the Fitzgerald Hotels. She was a finalist on the T.V. show Thirty Seconds to Fame. Emily then toured with the Celtic Rock Group Lenahan. She was the featured dancer on the song “Marie”, from the C.D. Brand New Bag, recorded by Clandestine Records.

Emily continued gathering championship after championship competing in National, Irish, British and Regional Competitions. These included ranking 9th in the 1997 Vancouver B.C. Nationals, 6th in the 1999 Chicago Nationals. She concluded her Irish Dancing competitive career, winning the 2002 Oireachtas (Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships) which was her last competition.

In June 2003, she auditioned for “Riverdance The Show” and in August 2003 she left for Ireland to be a member of “The Boyne Company”. She toured many cities throughout Canada and the United States such as Alaska, Las Vegas, Ottawa, Vancouver and New Orleans. She danced for the 10th anniversary of “Riverdance The Show” in Radio City Music Hall, New York City.
