Meet the PBF team: Introducing Emma Seaman 


1. What is your role at PBF?
I am the Community Engagement / Membership Growth Manager

2. How long have you been working at PBF?  
A little over 3 months

3. Take us through an average day for you.
Every day is different! It generally starts with some follow up emails to organisations regarding membership or injury prevention program opportunities.  Branches out to meeting prospective members face to face or researching organisations that PBF believe would benefit from our corporate membership and IP programs (actually everyone does – hit me up for some more information!)

4. What do you enjoy most about working for PBF?
I love the flexibility of being in the office, on the road, meeting people and then the occasional work from home day.  The people I work with are inspiring and open.  And all I want for people in this world is to be the best they can be with the opportunities created and strived for and I think in this role I can help others to do this.

5. What positive change or impact have you been making at PBF?
I bring industry experience (education, mental health and WHS) which allows PBF the opportunity to grow and develop.  

What most surprised you about the impact and incidence of spinal cord injury when you began to learn about this topic?
There has been a couple of things – the prevalence of SCI injuries every year, definitely more than I would have ever realised. And honestly the physical impact of a spinal cord injury on a person being more than just “not being able to walk”.

7. Is there a story or event that lead you to PBF as an organisation?
Throughout my teaching career I had heard Rob Pike’s story numerous times and just before I left Konnah Ruru’s journey.  And a wonderful former work colleague’s husband also worked at PBF.

8. What are your hobbies/what do you get up to outside of work?
I am an avid West Coast Fever member, I love to Cricut and create individual tshirts/jumpers etc., and I am training to be a Level 3 softball scorer as I live at softball games all weekend as my boys Luke and Jacob, and husband Troy are all involved one way or another.

9. What is your favourite thing about working for PBF/to reduce the impact and incidence of spinal cord injury?
The opportunity to change the world through education and financial assistance when people join our membership.

10. What jobs did you have before joining PBF?
Insurance Underwriter, Teacher, Schools Coordinator for a mental health organisation, WHS Administrator.  So many varying roles!


11. Why did you start working with PBF?
To make a difference

12. Why do you think people should become members of PBF Australia?
It’s the what if.  What if you were involved in a crash? What if you fell off a ladder? What if the water was too shallow when you dived in.  Noone plans to injure themselves, so why wouldn’t you protect yourself financially in the event of a traumatic spinal cord injury? The cost is so low for a membership benefit payment of $250,000 should this happen to you (knock on wood). I could talk for hours about why you should join!

13. Tell us something about yourself that not many people know:
In my spare time I am a cake decorator and have even won first place at our local community show for my cupcakes 2 years running!
