Emily grew up in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, where she began skating at the age of 8. Taking to the sport immediately, she started competing as a USFS singles skater after only one year of ISI competition. Continuing her competitive training for the next 11 years, Emily competed through college at the senior level while also coaching. She has passed her Senior Moves in the Field, Junior Freeskate, and is actively working on her last two Pre-Gold Ice Dances and preparing to test her Senior Freeskate. After graduating from Illinois State University, Emily began working at the Northbrook Sports Center where she has been for the past four years. She is entering her second season as the Teams Elite Program Supervisor and looks forward to another successful season!
