Dr. Emily Rice grew up in Baddeck NS and attended Acadia University, completing a Kinesiology degree. From there she completed her Medical Degree at the University of Ottawa and a rural Family Medicine residency in Terrace BC, through the University of British Columbia. While very tempted by Canada's wild West coast, after finishing her medical training she and her family decided that it was just too far from home and began thinking about coming back home to Nova Scotia. Antigonish seemed to have just the right fit and Dr. Rice, her husband and their one 1.5 yr old son arrived in January of this year. Since then she has been enjoying the opportunity to get to know the community through locum work and participating in community events. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with family and friends and being active outdoors whether it's hiking or swimming in the summer or skiing or snowshoeing in the winter.   

She is excited to be sharing physician responsibilities at St.FX this year with her classmate and good friend Dr. Amanda Worden-Rogers and very much looking forward to getting to know both university students and staff.
