Cory Sanderson

Executive Director
Juniors Men's Head Coach

What are three unique details about yourself?

  • Until moving to Nashville I had only ever lived in school dorms 
  • The first time I went surfing it was 30 degrees and snowing.
  • I love to cook and bake, thanks to my mother and grandparents.

What brought you to Nashville?

In March 2014 I came down to visit Eric and see what he had been telling me so much about for the previous months. Nashville was a chance to join a program and family that has great potential. I wanted to take the skills I had gained as a teacher and coach and focus them all towards rowing and the youth of Nashville. The city and greater community has an exciting buzz of growth and potential.

Why do you choose to coach?

For as long as I can remember, athletics have been a huge part of my life, due to my father being an Athletic Director. The decision to start rowing in high school, and the coaches that pushed me to excel on the water and in the classroom ultimately led me to rowing in college and to where I am now. Being an educator, whether it is in the classroom or on the water, is an opportunity to bring out the best in those around me, like so many did for me before.

What three pieces of media (books, movies, etc) outside of rowing would you suggest to athletes looking to improve themselves? (and why?)


Jess Mosbarger

Adult Program Director
Juniors Development Coach

What are three unique details about yourself?

  • I love my hometown: Chico, CA
  • Former Gaucho of UCSB
  • I have been in 20+ musical theatre productions

What brought you to Nashville?

After College, I started work in the Bay Area. The hours were long, the commute was terrible, and I hated working in doors. I had the opportunity to move out to Nashville so I took it!

Why do you choose to coach?

I fell in love with rowing in college. My job as a rowing coach allows me to help other athletes find love in this beautiful sport. That's more than enough reason for me.

Anne Campbell

What are three unique details about yourself?

  • I also work in an H. pylori lab at Vanderbilt
  • In recent years I’ve discovered that I like gardening and building
  • I’m Batman

What brought you to Nashville?

I visited my sister in Nashville in 2011 and decided that this was the city I wanted to move to after college, so moved here in 2012 with a job at Vanderbilt.

Why do you choose to coach?

Rowing is a sport that I fell in love with almost immediately, but I didn’t start my rowing career until college. I enjoy being part of a community that offers the opportunity to learn the sport of rowing at a young age.

What three pieces of media (books, movies, etc) outside of rowing would you suggest to athletes looking to improve themselves? (and why?)

  • The Harry Potter Series (teamwork- working toward common goals, friendship- putting others before yourself)
  • Star Wars Series (choosing the right thing over the easy thing, the idea of pushing yourself past your limits)
  • Anne didn't pick a third item :-(

Emilie Muller

Juniors Men's Assistant Coach
Masters Competitive Assistant Coach
Masters Development Coach

What are three unique details about yourself?

  • Living in Nashville is my first time being outside of northern New England for more than 3 weeks at a time
  • I love looking at maps
  • I have competed at national-level championships in three different sports: rowing, nordic skiing, and softball

What brought you to Nashville?

This job! I had visited Nashville a few times over the summer and as I realized I was looking for a new challenge that this city and this program might be a great fit for me. The single most important prerequisite for me to leave New England was that I wanted the opportunity to be a contribute to a community that was really excited and supportive of one of my favorite sports: rowing, nordic skiing, or mountain biking. After a few launch rides with Eric and Cory during my travels, I became convinced of the great momentum, potential, and enthusiasm for Nashville Rowing and its athletes. I am very excited to be here!

Why do you choose to coach?

I personally find both extreme challenge and satisfaction from working with a group to achieve a common goal, and have often found that my best self has been a product of my athletic experiences: especially in rowing. I am excited to teach and to continue to learn about a sport that I am passionate about and to help guide athletes in ways that will allow them to positively discover the great life lessons that this sport has to offer.

Caleb Corliss

Juniors Women's Assistant Coach

What are three unique details about yourself?

  • I love learning about invasive species, which I think are both inspiring and terrifying
  • I believe that everyone, and athletes especially, should learn some form of dance.
  • I make amazing macaroni and cheese.

What brought you to Nashville?

I came to Nashville to teach middle school science and listen to lots of music.

Why do you choose to coach?

A great program has to opportunity to help athletes develop stronger relationships with their peers, with the adults in their lives, and most importantly with themselves. It is an honor for me to serve that process. I also learn to be a better teacher and a more dedicated, more patient person.

What three pieces of media (books, movies, etc) outside of rowing would you suggest to athletes looking to improve themselves? (and why?)

  • Twelve by Twelve by William Powers (lessons about living simply and holding to your principles in a complicated world)
  • "The Name of this Band is Talking Heads" by Talking Heads (To train well, you have to find ways to have fun. To have fun, sometimes you have to be goofy. Plus, the beats on this album are great to get stuck in your head during a long piece)
  • Lab Girl by Hope Jahren (lots of generally relevant lessons about nurturing passion)
