Emma's mom enrolled her into recreational gymnastics for fun at TAGS South Gymnastics in Apple Valley, MN. Emma has been training under coach Bryon Hough her whole gymnastics career. Byron was the one who asked Emma to join pre-team not long after she started gymnastics! Emma followed Byron to Classic Gymnastics in Chanhassen, MN after the 2011 season.

Emma was the 2010 Level 6 MN State Vault and Uneven Bars Champion. She earned a bronze medal on vault at the 2011 Level 7 MN State Championships and 2012 Level 8 MN State Championships. At the 2011 Level 8 Regionals, she won the vault title with a 9.450. In 2015, Emma placed sixth on floor exercise at the Level 9 State Championships.

Emma qualified to the Level 9 Western Nationals in Montana where she placed first on vault and seventh on floor exercise.

Currently, Emma is preparing for the 2017 season as a level 9 gymnast. She trains 18-20 hours per week at Classic Gymnastics in Chanhassen, MN under coaches Bryon Hough and Charise Schrupp. Emma is working hard to reach her goals to become a successful level 10 gymnast and to obtain a college scholarship.
