Emma majored in Economics, and we asked her about that as well, and she told us
“I wasn’t exactly sure what Inwanted to do post college. I knew it was going to be something in business, but I really wasn’t sure. So I felt like doing something General like Economics would give me a good base to have all the options open when I figured it out, I'd 'have that knowledge.“ It seemed to us that Emma had a bit of a MSsachusetts connection, so we wondered how New Jersey to Syracuse, New York to the Bay State developed. She explained"My Dad’s entire family is from Boston so that’s kind of my connection.,Last summer I lived in Duxbury with my uncle and did my internship there. And then now I’m living outside the Boston area for a different sales company, ServiceNow. It’s a software company, they sell different types of workflows, like IT, Employee, Curtomer Sevice.”
Besides her scoring, something else that stands out on Emma’s stat sheet is that she is no stranger to the penalty box. And she included that in her description of her style of play, saying “My game is definitely top of the circles, down low in the offensive zone. Definitely a very physical,player, as the penalty minutes show" she laughed "But I really improved controlling my body, So just low, in tight, in the slot. I love shooting the puck, screening the goalie. I always say: If the goalie doesn’t like me, I’m doing my job. I just love trying to score and helping my teammates score. That’s the kind of player I am in the offensive zone.”
A player with a plan, size and a physical side to her game, has to make Coaches Orr and Brennan smile. As we wrapped things up,with Emma, we asked about how her post season training was going and she told us
“It’s going really well! As I mentioned before, I live near Brooke and Alli, ans Allie has a home gym, so we work out there. And we do a bunch of skates with a couple of our other friends in the area. So it looks pretty similar to what I’ve done in the past.”
We thank our Amazing rookie forward Emma for sharing some of her story with the fans. Emma officially signed with the Pod for Season Seven on July 20th, so though she surely will be “Forever Orange”, the fans will love seeing her for years to come in Whale Green. Blue & White. Fins Up to that!
