Emily graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music with Distinction in 2016. During her studies Emily won the RNCM Gilbert-Fell prize for contemporary solo performance, a music at Beaulieu award and third prize in the Virovitica international clarinet competition. She has played principal clarinet for contemporary music group Divertimento Ensemble in Milan, and also in a contemporary Britten-Pears ensemble led by Jessica Cottis, creating new music with young composers for the 2022 Aldeburgh Festival.

Solo performances include Weber’s 1st clarinet concerto with the Loughborough Symphony Orchestra, Copland’s Clarinet Concerto in Huddersfield Town Hall and the world premiere of Andy Fisher's Bass Clarinet Concerto. Emily also does extras work for multiple UK orchestras such as BBC NOW, Ulster Orchestra, BCMG, the Halle, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Opera North and the CBSO; this has included a recent Grammy nominated recording on Deutsche Grammophon playing bass clarinet for the CBSO under Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla in Weinberg’s Symphony No. 21.

As well as performing, Emily has a love of teaching the clarinet: alongside working at Sheffield University she teaches at Sheffield Music Academy, Manchester Grammar School, and coaches chamber music for the National Youth Concert Band.
