Movement has been the core of Emily’s life since she started dancing and downhill ski racing at age three. Her love for movement and the outdoors ultimately brought her to Montana. In 2001, Emily graduated from Montana State University with a bachelor’s degree in Health Enhancement and a minor in Dance. While attending college, she danced for MSU’s dance company and dance team. After college, Emily pursued her comprehensive Pilates Certification – wanting to stay connected to the dance world. This connection drew her to MBC, and she was asked to be a board member in 2004. Taking a break to become a mother, Emily was reintroduced to MBC once again joining the board to help where she can in 2008. Emily has worn many hats since graduating college, Event Planner, Real Estate Agent, Pilates/Barre instructor and mother. She loves using her experience and passion for the arts to help grow Montana Ballet Company. When she is not chasing her three young daughters, you can find Emily in the mountains hiking, biking and skiing with her husband. Emily is grateful to have MBC in our community, so she can share her love for the performing arts with her girls.
