Rochester Women Magazine Owner, Editor, & Publisher
This is Emily’s second business. In 2011, she opened Empowered Wellness & Fitness Studio. She graduated from St. Olaf College with a degree in French Education. After a short stint using her degree, she decided to stay home with her two sons (now aged 16 and 13). During this time, she discovered Zumba and became a fitness instructor. Over the past 9 years, she’s managed a staff of fitness instructors and trainers and eventually became a personal trainer herself.
When the opportunity presented itself to move into ownership of the beloved local Rochester Women Magazine, she could not pass it up. She is committed to lifting up women by sharing their stories. Emily serves as the Board President for the Rochester Civic Theatre and loves to act, sing, dance, read, cook, and eat. She doesn’t love to exercise, but she sometimes does it anyway.
Develop relationships within this supportive group of women leaders who meet the third Friday morning of each month. The Women's Roundtable provides a small, safe environment for women to: practice and refine skills, discuss challenges specific to women in positions of leadership, learn together and empower each other to take risks. Join us for a fun, engaging program driven by the needs of the group.
**Please note that all presentations and content delivered within or in the promotion of Roundtable meetings are entirely Roundtable Chair and member/attendee driven. Any messaging and content conveyed within and for these meetings is in no way representative of the Chamber's views, ideals, or positioning.**
Members of the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce are welcome to attend. In addition, prospective members are invited to attend twice before setting up a meeting to discuss whether Chamber membership is right for their organization.
