At Gonzaga, Emma Moon guides student-athletes toward their highest potential

On any given day, 27-year-old Emma Moon is a counselor, confidante or cheerleader for more than 300 student-athletes. She’s paying it forward every day.

“That’s a big part of our job, supporting them so they don’t feel stressed,” said Moon, the director of life skills development at Gonzaga’s Student-Athlete Support Services department.

Moon, 27, knows their potential because she’s walked in their shoes – and their crutches. A former soccer player at GU, the British Columbia native overcame heart surgery and an ACL injury.

She graduated in 2012, straight into her current job at GU.

She’s the “epitome of what being a Zag is all about,” said her supervisor, Mike Roden.
