Emily holds a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and exercise science from Grand Valley State University and a master’s degree in sports management from Western Michigan University. She enjoys spending time with her family and watching her kids compete in sports. Her love of Michigan finds them exploring the lakes and dunes of Northern Michigan.
