2016-17: Embar turned in a junior year that, by most measures, was the best of her career. While never a liability in terms of conditioning or commitment, she greatly improved from a skill standpoint and saw frequent scoring-line duty along with her more customary defensive roles. The Academic All-American kinesiology major and crossfit enthusiast closed the campaign by scoring twice in the team's final five games - on February 4, 2017 against NCAA Division III Lebanon Valley College and on February 26, 2017 against Northeastern. Embar also saw an increase in her importance to the WIHC off the ice, as she apprenticed under team treasurer Lucy Yeatman to prepare for taking over the role as a senior.

2015-16: One of the team's hardest workers, Embar rapidly gained the respect of the locker room in her second season. She became an easy lineup decision for head coach Patrick Fung, as she generally skated on the left wing of center Rachel Cole and right wing Nina Elia, a unit that formed a smart, tough and effective checking line.

2014-15: Embar, the twin sister of classmate Emma Embar, forged her way into the Lady Ice Lions lineup as the season progressed, ultimately dressing in 19 of the team's 27 games. She fired home her first two career goals on November 14, 2014 in a win over Slippery Rock and added an assist on January 31, 2013 against Northeastern.
