Emily's area of interest is commercial business where she works in close partnership with her clients to ensure their unique requirements are understood.
Emily first joined Coates in 1999 after completing a diploma in business studies at Tairawhiti Polytech.
Emily had a number of years away from chartered accountancy assisting her partner Alex to establish and grow a successful Engineering and Hydraulics business.
Once the business sold in April 2009, Emily returned to Coates. In 2015 she passed the Professional Ethics exam and is now an Accounting Technician.
Emily and Alec have established a small organic vineyard and harvested their second vintage of Chenin Blanc in 2016. Their goal is to produce an award winning wine in the near future.
