Emily was lucky enough to be born and raised in the mountain town of Ketchum, Idaho. She grew up cross-country ski racing, which instilled a love of both the outdoors and endurance events early on. She is fairly new to the trail racing scene- but has been trail running her entire life. Emily is a coach for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, is on the Idaho Conservation League’s Emerging Leaders for Idaho’s Environment Board, and spends as much time as possible outside. She hopes to use her running to empower young women in sport and bring awareness to environmental issues.
