Emma Kathryn Miskew (born February 14, 1989) is a Canadian curler. She is the long-time third of the three-time Canadian champion and 2017 world champion Rachel Homan rink.[1] The Homan team represented Canada at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Miskew joined up with Homan in 2001 at the age of 12, after their fathers decided to form a team with the pair after the two faced off in the final of a little rock tournament played during the 2001 Nokia Brier. Miskew, who had been curling since she was five, was previously a skip in her own right.[2] As a member of the Homan rink, Miskew has won four provincial Bantam titles, two Provincial junior titles, a Canada Games gold medal, the 2010 Canadian Junior Curling Championships, three provincial championships (2011, 2013 & 2017) and three Scotties Tournament of Hearts in 2013, 2014 and 2017, the 2015 Canada Cup of Curling, the 2017 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials and a career six Grand Slam of Curling titles. She represented Canada at the 2010 World Junior Curling Championships in Flims, Switzerland where she won a silver medal. She also represented Canada as a member of the Homan team at the 2013 World Women's Curling Championship in Riga, Latvia where she won a bronze medal, at the 2014 Ford World Women's Curling Championship in Saint John, New Brunswick where they won a silver medal and at the 2017 World Women's Curling Championship where they won a gold medal. At the 2018 Winter Olympics, the team would finish in sixth place.

Aside from the Homan team, Miskew was also won the 2008 Junior provincial mixed title with Christian Tolusso.
