She placed 2nd for the High Point Champion at the Metro 15-18 age group Challenge while swimming for her team, the Wolverines, Westchester Aquatic Club, where she continues to train.
Emily devoted her time to community outreach events from the age of 7 years old and throughout high school. She participated in many fundraisers, fashion shows, health fairs and implemented an internship at the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds, where she currently works full time each summer as a swim instructor for special needs and children of all ages.
Emily graduated St. Joseph by-the-Sea High School this year as a National Honor Society Student with Mastery in Mathematics and the Service Above Self Awards. She was also a senior sister and peer tutor at her high school.
