Emma is originally from Saratoga Springs, NY. Following the lead of her older brother, she joined Saratoga Rowing Association in seventh grade, and became a men's coxswain in 10th grade. She continued as a men's coxswain through her senior year at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. Most recently, she volunteered to cox learn to row and masters at Hudson River Rowing Association. Along with her partner, Emma took a road trip clockwise around the US and landed with family in Seattle. They moved to Bellingham in June of 2018. Emma's fondest memories from growing up in this sport include multi-day bus rides for spring training in Orlando, FL, Oak Ridge, TN and Clemson, SC, challenging maneuvers during the Head of the Charles which she coxed from 2008-2012, and carrying sand bags at the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta. She looks forward to learning new skills in the sport and having more fun experiences with WRA!
