Emmell planned and trained for five years to prepare for this undertaking, trekking many varied paths in contrasting weather conditions. Emmell is a mother, writer, musician, music therapist, teacher and pastoral carer who has spent her life walking a metaphorical journey with people. Working in hospitals, special education schools and out in the community, Emmell has accompanied people during the most challenging and celebratory times of their lives.
