Owner, Baja Casa Verde
Having grown up with entrepreneurial parents on an organic farm, Emily followed in their footsteps and chose lifestyle over a traditional career path. Having worked in fundraising for many years after graduating from university, she left office life when her first son was born. A series of unique circumstances and taking a few big risks, Emily and her husband ended up buying a boutique, beachfront hotel in La Ventana, Mexico. She now splits her time between Mexico - where she kiteboards, teaches yoga, and runs the hotel and Canada - where she is at home with her children, manages hotel bookings, and spends as much time outdoors hiking and biking as possible.
