2. Emily Riedel’s Career Change From Opera Singer To Gold Miner
The adventurous Emily who stands at the towering height of 5 feet 11 inches ( 1.8 meters) started her career as an Opera singer before teaming up with her father in the gold mining business. She and her father invested in the field of gold mining after Emily sought a career change.
Before that, her family was involved in fishing for survival. When her childhood friend Zeke invited her in Nome, Alaska for gold digging, she gave it a shot.
According to the wiki, she was given the job of a deckhead on Zeke’s ship known as The Clark. Later she worked on The Edge which was captained by Zeke himself.
Emily then became the first female dredge owner and captain, leading her team on the dredge, The Eroica and later went onto star in the Discovery show which she is quite famous for. Her show Bering Sea Gold is on its 10th Season which was released on the month of June in 2018.
She has also been involved in the Discovery network through the project for conserving acres of Tiger, named as ProjectCat.
The show helped her establish a career in gold mining. The show premiered on 27 January 2012, and as one of the lead cast member, she has appeared in all the episodes.
3. Emily Riedel: Chooses to Focus on Profession, No Time For Love
Emily was once in love with her captain Zeke but was in an on and off relationship with him. In an interview with Ora on 20 February 2013, she addressed the problems with her former boyfriend, Zeke saying:
We have had problems in our relationships. We have had a lot of turmoil. Like he was in love with me and I was in love with him. And then something really big happened to really mess up our lives.
In the same interview, Zeke described himself as a work-loving guy who chooses to focus on his work. Furthermore, he added that he does not have any room for romance and relationships for him at this moment.

With both the partners heavily focused on making it big in their career, they decided to bring an end to their dating life.
