Emelie was born and raised on the east coast of Sweden. The wild forests and the small hills where her playground and that´s where her fascination for the nature and environment begun.
As a teenager she spent a lot of time rock climbing and skiing which brought her to the mountains where she fell in love. The mountains took her heart away and ever since then she has loved skiing, running or climbing in them.
Away from the mountain Emelie studied biology, worked in the mountains and ran as much as she could in her spare time. In 2012, Emelie joined the international Salomon team and since then she has been running races all over the world and loved every bit of them. Running is so much more than just a hobby!
Emelie now lives in northern Norway with her husband and their young child on a small farm. She is a co-founder of Moon Valley Sports Nutrition.
