Emily (she/her) received her B.A. in Social Science with a focus in Community Development and Leadership from Oregon State University-Cascades. A proud Bend Beav alumna, Emily competed for the university on the alpine ski racing team and worked on-campus as a TOUR ambassador and in the Office of Student Life with student programming. After graduating, Emily worked at OSU-Cascades first as a campus public safety officer and then an admissions advisor for several years before venturing into a career with health and fitness as an Orangetheory coach, which she continues weekly for fun.

A lifelong Oregonian, Emily loves anything and everything outdoors, especially when enjoyed with friends and family.

She also runs a handmade clay earring business on the side, Thirteen Peaks Co.
