Created: 11 October 2022

Join us in welcoming Emily McBride to the USASA as our new Member Services Manager. Emily, a New Hampshire native, spent her formative professional years in Statesboro, GA, Lincoln, NE and Cincinnati, OH working in the fast-past world of executive administration and sales. In 2020, Emily and her husband Matt moved back to New Hampshire to start their family and put her passion for building positive relationships to practice as a 1st-grade teacher working to ensure students, parents, and coworkers all flourished through the pandemic.

Emily is already proving to be a most valuable asset to the USASA staff, bringing process, positivity, and a can-do attitude to her work. You can now find Emily, Matt, and their 3-month-old son Cy at our new USASA remote headquarters in Littleton, NH. Emily will be within easy driving access to six USASA regional series so look out for her on the hill and in your inbox.

Emily and family (Jarvis too!) getting ready for their first USASA winter.

Four weeks into her role as USASA’s Member Services Manager, we caught a minute with Emily to learn a few fun facts about our newest Team Member:

How long have you been snowboarding and or skiing? I've been snowboarding for 19 years! I'm lucky to have grown up in the White Mountains region of NH, where we had half days at school in the winter to take lessons.

What's your idea of the best day on the hill?
Oooh! Sunny, crisp, clear conditions. Out EARLY as soon as the lifts open with my brothers and hubby, exploring challenging glades, stopping midway for a steamy, warm (and overpriced) lunch, and back out to close down the lifts. Lots of high fives and chair lift belly laughs.

What’s your most used Emoji these days?
Probably - I'm constantly ogling over my 3-month-old in our family group chat.

As the front line of Member Services, what are you most looking forward to in your new role?
I'm most excited to meet all of YOU! Our Members, Coaches, Series Directors, Judges, Officials, Volunteers, Parents... USASA is such a warm and welcoming community that I cannot wait to interact with in person.

What was it about USASA that inspired you to join the team?
The mission of USASA resonated with me most. Snowboarding was a big part of my culture growing up, and now having my own kiddo, we are so excited to make it a big part of our family culture, too. Coming from a unique background of education and customer service, my passions and experience seemingly collided into one rad job description! I'm so grateful to be working alongside a passionate and compassionate team of snow-loving athletes.

When you’re not handling USASA duties, where can we find you?
You can find me spending time outside with my family and sweet big ole dog, Jarvis.

Perfect vacation?
Call me crazy, but a car-camping road trip someplace new! My husband and I did a three-week National Parks tour out west for our Honeymoon and I still daydream about that trip.

Favorite ice cream flavor?
More of a category that I call "chocolate brownie nonsense" - any chocolate variety with gobs of chocolatey add-ins. :)
