Emily, a Colorado native, moved to California in 2014 to pursue her career in beach volleyball. After a successful indoor career at Wichita State University – where she was a 2-time All American – and four years playing professionally overseas, she decided to make the transition to beach. In 2015, she made the Elite Development Program through USAV, and has been steadily climbing the ranks since. She is now the 2nd ranked team for the USA and 12th ranked team in the world, with teammate Kelley Larsen. In 2016, she won her first international event at the NORCECA in St. Lucia. Since then, she has received two more Gold Medals, a Silver, and a Bronze on the FIVB Tour. In 2018, she and teammate Kelley Larsen were the first-ever Queen of the Beach Champions. She was also a finalist at the 2017 AVP event in Austin, and in 2019 won her first AVP event in Seattle.
During the offseason, Emily helps coach the Boys’ and Girls’ beach programs at Mira Costa High School. Anytime she has a free weekend, she seeks adventure – you’ll most likely find her in the mountains, camping, riding her dirt bike, or snowboarding.
