Emily Rodger is a Public Speaker, Certified Executive Coach, former Elite Cyclist, and avid Outdoorswoman. Raised in New Brunswick, Canada, along with my three sisters, sports were not part of my life until adulthood. After working as a dental hygienist, she pursued her passion for triathlon and cycling. In her full first year of bike racing, she competed in 21 races, which included 17 podiums, 14 1st place finishes, a national masters title, and a World Masters title in Time Trial. Before long, she was racing in the professional peloton.

But along with her success in cycling/triathlon came more than a few hardships. She was involved in two severe cycling crashes where she was struck by vehicles, resulting in multiple broken bones, a brain injury, and extensive soft tissue damage. Emily knows how it feels to be shattered, both mentally and physically. But no matter how broken she was or felt, she believed that there is always a way out of our darkest places.

These life-altering events made her a stronger, more resilient, more grounded, and more grateful person. When she was mentally struggling with the trauma she experienced, Emily focused on what truly brought joy to her life and came to a greater understanding and acceptance of her true self, what she values, and what makes her tick.

She took a step back from racing professionally to pursue all that genuinely brought her joy. As a result, she developed her passion for coaching others through their own difficult seasons and helping them achieve their biggest goals. Emily believes joy is found when we stop chasing that circumstantial happiness and set our minds on something truly extraordinary.

Cadence: Breaking Rhythm and Finding Pace, the short film on Emily’s story, is on the festival circuit now.
