Sheehan played for the ACHA Division 3 men's team at Gettysburg College in 2015-16 and 2016-17, helping the Bullets to third and fourth-place finishes in the Delaware Valley Collegiate Hockey Conference's American South division. Prior to college, she skated for the Chester County Skating Club Cougars, a team notable for producing 2017 Lady Ice Lions graduate Lucy Yeatman. Sheehan's CCSC teams qualified for the Mid-Atlantic Women's Hockey Association's district championships for three consecutive seasons.

Emily Anne Sheehan was born on October 14, 1996 in West Chester, PA into a family that includes father John, a former hockey player at Fairfield University, as well as younger brother Michael and younger sister Claire. The English and political science double major - who plans to attend law school - was a Dean's List student at Gettysburg and, outside of hockey, is also a member of student organizations Ohana and College Republicans. Sheehan was an extremely accomplished softball player at her high school, Academy of Notre Dame de Namur, where she was a varsity starter and captain for three years. Her distinctions on the diamond included National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-America Scholar-Athlete honors as a senior in 2014-15 and spots on the All-Main Line, Delaware County and Inter-Academic League teams.
