Em is an adaptive athlete, baker/cake decorator, adventurer, Hip Hop 5k/10k founder and student. She has been through multiple surgeries to reconstruct her hips and essentially restore function to her lower limbs. At present, she has been adaptive for just over 6 years. With hip dysplasia and a spinal defect she no longer has use of her left limb. While her blog Emi2Hips started as a way to share her surgical experiences and stories for friends, family, and other hip patients out in the world, it has now transitioned to share her life adventures as baker, adaptive athlete, and all around enthusiasm for living to the fullest…. cause after all, life happens when we least expect it.
