Emily Zinn

Cat 3 Cross, Cat 3 Road

Emily loves to be outside toeing the line between in and out of control. Rafts, kayaks, skis, hiking boots and bikes all take her to wonderful adventures. She also loves creating things of all variety and gets to do lots of that as a museum curator. She’s lived three years abroad and been to nearly 30 countries. Other adventures include captaining a raft down the Grand Canyon, relocating mature crocodiles and living aboard a 16th Century replica ship.
