Emily (She/Her/Hers) received her BA in Public Policy with a concentration in Education, Sociology, and English from Syracuse University and MS in Higher Education Administration. Her entire professional career has been student-centric. After graduating, Emily jumped right into the classroom as an eighth-grade language arts teacher and spent three years working with students in that capacity. She then transitioned into working with undergraduate students in the area of leadership development. This work brought her to the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design and the University of Denver. Additionally, she has coached collegiate women's ice hockey and amateur ice hockey. Now, as the Program Coordinator for the Presidents Leadership Class and the Center for Leadership at CU Boulder, Emily has the distinct pleasure of working with students, faculty, staff, and community members alike who are passionate about shaping the leaders of tomorrow. Emily is heavily invested in learning about people, where they come from, and what they think. She feels that the only way that people can learn and grow as humans is by pushing themselves outside the limits of what they know and understand to a place of discomfort and inquiry. Emily is incredibly interested in how a person's leadership journey can be defined by any and all experiences that they have had in life, particularly through sports. Originally from Rhode Island, Emily moved to Colorado in 2011 and enjoys everything the state has to offer. She currently lives in Henderson with her wife and family. She enjoys playing ice hockey, hiking, camping, board games, and cooking.
