Emma has been competing internationally for over 15 years in adventure raids, triathlons, marathons, etc. Gathering along all these years’ she can share exceptional and valuable experiences with all kinds of audiences.
She got her degree in biochemistry in 1996, became a professional firefighter in 2000, took part in her first international adventure raid in 1997 and had her first baby in 2006.
Adventure raids are multidiscipline sport events where you are pedaling, running and rowing for three days resting only 2 hours every day. These kinds of events take the human body to its physical and metal limit, and you reach to conclusions you would reach to in your everyday life.
She can share her experiences in adventure raids, travelling all over the world and getting to know in depth different cultures, or from her knowledge as a biochemist, or from her experiences as a mother of three, or from her expertise as a professional firefighter.
The last ultra-endurance events she has taken part in have been the raid world championship (which she won), the marathon des sables (where she finished in second place) and the Niece Ironman (where she finished first in her age group and ninth overall). These three experiences, on there own, are enough to share many different accounts.
She’s tried out many different fields, always carrying the handicap of being unusual, a woman, singular ... later she has had a lot of successes and disappointments all of which have been useful to mature, improve, be happy...
She can adapt herself to different subjects related to the world of ultra-endurance sports, to her life as a mother, a biochemist or firefighter. She’s always tried to pass on values such as effort, perseverance, team work, and personal improvement.

Being able to share also serves as a way to open new ways.
She can deliver lectures in Catalan, Spanish and English on the following subjects always adapting to the clients needs:
