Aquatics Program Director & Head Swim Coach ​

Emily graduated from Auburn University with a B.S. in Physical Education. She brings a high-level of experience to GAC as she builds the aquatics program. Emily was a four-year member of the Auburn University swim team; she is a 17-time All American and a 2-time Olympic time trial qualifier. 

Emily is excited with the prospect of building a stellar aquatics program, "GAC has been blessed with an exceptional swim facility. We will begin working with the P.E. program by offering swim lessons to students as part of their daily class. I am excited to see how the students will improve over the years with this new program. Students will develop not only swimming skills, but will learn how to be safe in the water. Hopefully, this will ignite student interest and will expand our swim teams."
