Emily on the Court

Emily is from Springfield, Missouri and went on to play for the University of Missouri. She left Mizzou as one of the program's all-time steadiest and most productive middle blockers. By her senior year, she ranked top-five in block assists, blocks per set and solo blocks, and she's only the fourth Tiger to have 400+ career total blocks. She's played professionally in Germany and France.

Birthday celebrations

Trying new foods with friends is a favorite pastime for me! I celebrated my 29th birthday with friends at a modern, middle-eastern restaurant in Paris.


Emily in Paris

I was so fortunate to live and play in Paris for two seasons. Getting outside and enjoying the sun and sights with friends brought me joy and balance.


Off season activities

During my off season, I love to stay active outdoors. Here’s me and my cousin hiking in Boulder!


A trip to California

This is from a trip to Manhattan Beach, California. Spent the day in the sunshine with my favorite chambray shirt and a wonderful friend of mine.
