Career

Mentorship is the heart of what drives Emma! As an athlete that is brains and brawn, she shares her inner anatomy geekiness in her professorial role in the Vocational Medicine Department at Central Oregon Community College. She keeps clinical hours as well helping athletes returning to their sport post-orthopedic injury through manual therapy and movement reeducation. She also gives one-on-one skills sessions with new mountain bike riders so that they can learn to ride trails in a safe and fun environment.

MTB Coach with Wenzel Coaching: Emma provides individual training and MTB skills coaching to amatuer racers in various cycling discuplines.

Local Cycling Advocate: Through this outlet, Emma provides lectures, clinics, and events through her bike shop, Sunnyside Sports and the Bend Bellas, in her hometown of Bend, OR.
