Emily has a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from University of California at Santa Cruz that no doubt helps her outwit her opponents in pool and at cards (Poker, Blackjack and Gin). Emily was introduced to the game of pool by her father and four uncles, who taught her the value of hard work as well as how to be competitive.
Recently relocated from California to New York, Emily couldn't be happier with her decision. "There is new energy all around, the electricity of the city is like magic, and the constant intellectual and physical stimulus is off the charts." Her love of good food propelled her to work for Restaurant Associates, the largest catering company in New York City, where she is known as "the pool player."
She hopes that Rack Starz will be able to change the portrayal of pool on television and to expose more women to the game.
