Biography

A Rio Grande native, Emily grew up just down the street from the University and spent much of her young life on campus with her father, a retired men’s basketball coach and communications professor. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Sports and Exercise Studies from Rio in May 2016, and started working as a recruiter just two months later. Emily worked as a Rio Grande Student Ambassador for the Office of Admissions for 4 years. She was very involved in Student Life as an undergraduate being part of Chi Omega Alpha sorority, a member of the All Greek Council Executive Committee, Student Senate Vice President, a Resident Assistant, and working in the Fitness Center. She recruits the western part of Ohio, and northeast Kentucky. She also currently oversees the Student Ambassador Program. Emily is excited to share her passion about Rio to future students.
