Jack Talk Speakers Emily Ower Oakville, ON Emily Ower grew up in Oakville, Ontario. For university, she moved to Montreal to study Neuroscience and English Literature at McGill. She now calls Calgary (or more realistically the Rocky Mountains) her home while studying medicine. Emily believes that sharing stories is one of the best ways to support each other and make meaning from the weird and wonderful things that life throws at you. She is a proud Jack Talks speaker and loves being outside. While she misses canoeing in northern Ontario, exploring the Rockies by hiking or skiing depending on the season has found to be a great replacement.
