Running for Snowboard Representative Seat
Emily is currently the Valley Kids Snowsports Director at Swiss Valley Ski and Snowboard Area in Jones, Michigan. She has held this position since winter of 2011. Having grown up and experienced skiing for the first time there it was easy to call it home.

Teaching snowsports since high school, first working with children and then adults. Later joining PSIA-AASI Central Division in 2008 and opening up a world of possibilities in teaching Snowsports, allowing for a multi-disciplined professional education to begin.

Serving on Central’s Board of Directors for the past 3 years, representing Section 5 Alpine, Administrative Vice President for the last two and a member of the Central Education Foundation Board for the last year.

Instructing snowsports is the one constant in life, one true passion over a lifetime of adventures. Being able to work side by side with instructors from other schools and participate in training around the Central Division opened up infinite possibilities to expand a professional career and personal growth with the infusion of training from Central Divisions educational staff, certifications in Snowboard, Alpine, Telemark and as a Children’s Specialist is just the beginning of the journey.

Interactions with so many great professional instructors and accredited resorts fueled the quest for knowledge, to share, and to provide the best experience for the client wherever knowledge meets the snow.
