Emily Ender, Area Director: Preska, McElroy, & Stadium Heights
Education: B.S. in Special Education from the University of Wisconsin-Stout, M.S. Ed in Student Affairs Administration from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

What I like about being a Maverick: There is so much campus pride throughout the community! You can go anywhere in Mankato and see people wearing MSU apparel or with Stomper stickers in their windows. It creates an incredibly welcoming environment and just goes to show that MSU is the place to be!
Professional Development/Involvement/Interests: I was previously the NRHH Advisor at Georgia Southern University. I advised delegations attending RBC (Regional Business Conference) in 2018, and the GLACURH Regional Leadership Conference in 2016. I am passionate about leadership and taught a leadership course during my time at Georgia Southern. I have attended several conferences, including Lead365, a conference focused on helping empower students through leadership, and Across the Lifespan, a conference for educators from K-12 through higher education that is focused on supporting students with disabilities throughout their education and careers.
Hobbies: When I’m not at work, I like to attend car shows with my partner, Nate, and visit parks with my dog, Goose. I also love hiking, finding new coffee places, painting, and working out.
