Hi! I’m Emma.

I have worked at Pick-it-Fence since the age of 14 and was so lucky to have the opportunity to take over as owner of the Pembroke location in 2010 (at the age of 19 - yes, crazy!). Looking back, I can’t believe how young I was and how much confidence the original owners had in me. I have learned so many things over the years and truly love what I do. I am grateful every day that I get to come to work in such a beautiful space, and have the most supportive employees. I have always been a creative person, and I am happiest when I am in “creative mode”. Creating store displays, having fun with social media, and hunting for the next best product to bring into the store. I absolutely love seeing customers come in and enjoy their time browsing and gushing over everything in the store. It literally puts a smile on my face.

I was born and raised in the Ottawa Valley, and have never left. I am thankful for my parents, who have instilled a good work ethic, kindness, and a strong moral compass in me. My family is everything to me. I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without them. I am a Mom to two beautiful, energetic little boys (with one more on the way!) and a wife to an incredible man. They are my “why”. My life is chaotic and beautiful at the same time. I wouldn’t change it for a thing.
