Emily Boer

Emily Boer bring to Fitness Forward expertise in non-profit management and administration. She helped develop the board structure for the organization and will provide great guidance as the organization matures. She will also bring strong leadership to the ambitious fundraising targets for Fitness Forward in the coming years.

Emily has a BA from Williams College in Psychology and Art History. After graduation she worked at Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts before moving onto Community Legal Services And Counseling Center in Cambridge, MA where she was responsible for many aspects of the organization’s fundraising, public relations and administration.

She is currently receiving her Master of Public Administration from the top-ranked Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. She was selected as this year’s Vernon Snow Fellow, a prestigious fellowship given annually to one student who displays a strong commitment to the non-profit sector. Emily is also currently interning at the Central New York Community Foundation. This experience has greatly broadened her scope of the non-profit sector, as she has now been exposed to both the grant requesting and grant making sides of the funding relationship.

Emily enjoys practicing Ashtanga yoga, downhill skiing, hiking and mountain biking. She believes that fitness can easily and happily be incorporated into one’s daily life. She was a coxswain for the Williams College Men’s Crew and enjoys returning each fall to compete in the Head of the Charles with an alumni boat.
