Emily Girdwood Portrait
  • BA in Political Science from Colorado College
  • Masters of Non-Profit Management from Regis University

Emily grew up in the mountains of New Hampshire and moved to the ‘real’ mountains of Colorado as soon as she could. In her free time, Emily can be found skiing, mountain biking, running or just enjoying the sunshine. Emily holds a B.S. in Political Science from Colorado College and a Masters of Non-Profit Management from Regis University. Emily joined the ASC in 2010 after working for various nonprofit organizations on the Front Range.

Why did you choose to work with people with disabilities?
There are many contributing factors that make my position at the ASC a great fit for me. First, I have chosen to pursue a career in the nonprofit sector.  Second, outdoor recreation has always played an important role in my life and is integral to who I am. My position at the ASC has allowed me to combine these two aspects of my life. I enjoy having a job that allows me to use my professional skills to enlarge the community of people who have access to the outdoor recreation that I value so highly.

What’s your favorite thing about working at the Adaptive Sports Center?
I would say my favorite thing about working at the ASC is the people: coworkers, participants, volunteers and donors.
