Vice President

Emma Guinee

Bio: Hello everyone! My name is Emma Guinee. I am a Senior Marketing major from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I am serving as Vice President for the 2023 - 2024 school year. Last year I had the opportunity to serve as Publicity Chair but I am excited for a new challenge. I had no rowing experience before joining MURC so I was very nervous about what was ahead. But joining this team has been the best decision I've ever made! I knew I was joining a team on the water but never expected to find a family on land. I encourage everyone to join MURC and find their home at Miami like I did.
