As a student-athlete at Purdue and Creighton, she went to the NCAA Tournament three times, was named an All-American and First Team All-Big East twice, and the Big East Player of the Year as a junior. She was one of the most dominant setters in the country, piling up over 1000 assists in each of her seasons at Creighton. She helped lead her team to the Elite Eight in 2016 and round of 32 in 2017. I love that she has trained under two of the best coaches in the game today in Dave Shondell and Kirsten Bernthal Booth. While getting a masters at the University of South Carolina, she also played two seasons of beach volleyball, making it to the NCAA tournament in 2018."

I volleyball student-athlete at the University of Northern Colorado, makes it three members on the NSU volleyball coaching staff, including Rosen and assistant coach Selene Teitelbaum.

"From our first conversation, I could feel her excitement for coaching and knew she could add something special to our program. The fact that she is from the South Florida area, coaches at one of the top clubs in the area, and has high-level DI playing experience were added bonuses. Emily will be able to start right away and train our middles and right sides, a position of incredible talent on our roster. I cannot wait to see the development of our offense and blocking with her guidance.
 
The best part about Emily is her shared passion for our program and belief in what we can accomplish. After meeting our players, she learned very quickly why Selene and I rave about them as individuals and their competitive work ethic on and off the court. Emily is ready to help the Sharks achieve their goals in the 2020 season and beyond, and I can't wait to get started working with her."
