Emma Oates

Emma is married to Steve and together they have two children who both have BBS. They run a touring caravan park in a pretty village in North Yorkshire, where they live with their dogs, cat and an array of ‘outdoor’ animals. Steve also runs a plumbing business.

Emma and Steve’s son Tom, now 21, is currently on a Supported Internship and hopes to graduate to an Apprenticeship next year. Katie, their daughter, now 19, is studying Animal Management at Askham Bryan College in York. Katie hopes to get a paid job working with animals, possibly in a rescue centre, when she graduates in a few years’ time.

Emma and Steve have been involved with the BBS society since 2010. And have attended most conferences since then.
