Emma studied at Birmingham University followed by a post graduate course at Webber Douglas. Starting her career on the Southbank at ITV’s London Studios, she quickly found her passion as an agent working with established agencies. Filled with excitement and zeal to build a new-style agency, she launched Bloomfields Welch in 2004.

Emma’s vision was then as it is now - to have clients working in all areas of the industry at the highest level in both the UK and internationally, fulfilling their aspirations.
