Immediately after Emily completed her studies from the University of Carolina, she hit the road looking for a job. The music job wasn’t forthcoming, and at this time her friend, Zeke Tenhoff gave her a call asking her to visit him at Nome in Alaska. He encouraged her to start a gold dredging career, which was quite profitable.
Emily didn’t wait for any more prodding, and she began working on her new calling; gold dredging. With the help of Zeke, she started out. Emily was allocated a boat by the name ‘The Clark’ a gold digging vessel captained by Zeke. She began working as a deckhand. The reality star later moved to another vessel, ‘The Edge’, again captained by Zeke.
As the story is narrated, Emily had arrived at Nome with only, $300, which could only afford her a small rundown shack with a small bed. Her fortunes changed after some years of gold dredging. Emily now owns her own vessel, Eroica Mining, which she bought from Zeke.
One time when traveling back to Alaska, she got a call from the makers of the ‘Deadliest Catch’ show explaining that they were interested in recording the lives of Bering Sea gold dredgers.
Her love for the show made it easy to agree to their request. It was from this that her TV career was launched.
She started as a diver and deckhand in season 1 and 2 to be a captain in season 3. The reality star is now a full-time cast member of the show. She captains her own vessel, Eroica Mining.
The star has a large social media following with 11.9 k on Instagram and 14.6k on Twitter.
