Emma Jonsson

King School
United States

Passion for sports and equality showed up early in my life in a way of organizing inclusion-workshops in middle school as well as being captain of my youth soccer team. Growing up in Sweden, I began playing organized sports early in elementary school. Although I played mostly soccer, I have had the privilege of trying many different sports such as dance, rock climbing, and racing triathlons as an adult. Over the last eleven years, I have worked at King School, Stamford, CT, USA. My role has evolved from an assistant athletic trainer and girl-athlete liaison to my current role as the Director of Student-Athlete Health Services. My work includes providing rehabilitative services, acute management of athletic injuries, concussion management, as well as teaching health and wellness. I also organize educational events for the school community on topics such as nutrition, leadership, inclusion, and mental health.
