Emily was a competitive swimmer from the age of 8 all the way through college. She swam for the University of Michigan becoming an Honorable Mention All American and two time Olympic Trials Qualifier in the 100m breaststroke. After graduation she moved to Chicago and got a “real job”, leaving her athletics career behind. In 2004, she found herself on the start line of the Chicago Triathlon. As an athlete all her life, Emily welcomed sport back into her life wholeheartedly and competed as an amateur for five years. She earned her professional license after finishing 2nd overall amateur at the 2009 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon.

 

After 10 years of Chicago winters, Emily and her husband Andy had the opportunity to relocate to Napa, California. Emily relished the opportunity to train full time while continuing to coach swimmers and triathletes. Every year, Emily continued to improve; finishes just outside the top ten eventually turned top five and podium finishes against strong fields. In her final season as a professional Emily finished the year with a 5th place finish at the ITU Long Distance World Championships. In November 2016 she completed her first Ironman, finishing in a respectable 9:25. 

 

Emily improved throughout her career, recording her strongest seasons at 38 and 39 years of age. Consistency, patience and a love of the process were the pillars of her training approach. All her life, Emily has fully immersed herself in athletics--it is her true passion. This commitment fueled her steady and consistent improvement during her professional career. Nothing happens overnight, the work you do week in and week out will pay dividends in the months and years to come--the key is to stick with it and enjoy what you are doing!
