This role oversaw the growth from a start-up to a national company providing services to national banking and insurance companies.In the UK, Emma presented at National Claims Conferences and was invited to publish articles detailing proactive injury management interventions for claims risk magazines in the UK insurance market. After returning to Australia in 2012, Emma worked briefly for a local provider and then proceeded to develop SalusWA in partnership with Kirsten Somers. In February 2019, Emma took on sole ownership of SalusWA whilst Kirsten decided to pursue a tree change.
