Please welcome Emma Powell to the AER team as marketing content manager.

Emma will be one of the faces behind the AER social media accounts, and you can contact her directly with marketing needs through FB messenger or epowell@austineliterugby.com

With background in graphic design, photography, and most recently marketing for Challenger Sports British Soccer, she earned a BS from BYU-Idaho in entrepreneurial management and marketing graphic design with 10+ years of owning her own photography business. Emma started playing rugby in 1993 as the first member of the first high school girl’s rugby team in the US (now the Kent Crusaders). She played briefly for the Seattle Breakers and Austin Valkyries, and after taking many years off from rugby joined the San Marcos Sirens for their 2016 inaugural season. Emma was recently featured in Shape Magazine highlighting the growth of US women’s amateur rugby. In addition to enjoying rugby, she has a black belt in karate, plays guitar, and is a church organist. She and her husband have been married 20 years and homeschool their six children, several of whom are youth rugby players for the San Marcos Spartans. She is excited to help build the Austin and national pro rugby community.
