Elyssa Emrich Joins GreenSportsBlog As Midwest Correspondent


If GreenSportsBlog has demonstrated anything these first 5 months, it’s that the intersection of Green + Sports is becoming busier and more vibrant by the day. There is more news and are more interesting stories out there than one person can cover.

So, I am happy to announce that Elyssa Emrich has joined the GreenSportsBlog as our Midwest Correspondent.  Elyssa is based in Madison, WI and  I can’t think of a better place from which to cover the Green/Sports movement as Madison is both a hotbed of green/clean tech innovation and also is home to the University of Wisconsin Badgers.  Elyssa recently graduated from Wisconsin with a dual degree in Marketing and Management.

The first step in the sports portion of Elyssa’s career was taken at the Wisconsin Athletic Department where she interned for 4 years.  Elyssa got a first hand view of the food waste challenges at sports/entertainment venues while working at Badgers football games at Camp Randall Stadium (capacity 80,321) with Guest Services. She spent her last two years at Wisconsin with the Athletic Marketing Department providing marketing support to all sports and being the primary contact for the softball and soccer programs.

Elyssa arrived at the intersection of Green + Sports through her work at the recent Green Sports Alliance Summit in Brooklyn.  She will burnish her sustainability credentials as an intern with the City of Madison Recycling Department.

I look forward to working with Elyssa.  And, in the spirit of GSB collegiality, Wisconsin has officially become GSB’s favorite Big 10 team. Until next fall, that is, when Rutgers joins the league. Then, we will have a friendly rivalry. (Ed. note: Wisconsin visits Rutgers, Nov 1, 2014.  GSB will be dark that week.) Elyssa guarantees a Wisconsin win tomorrow night at #3 Ohio State.

Please welcome Elyssa to the GSB fold.  You will be reading her work soon.  She can be reached at
