Meet Emily

So how did I end up here?

Over the years I found myself burnt out, overwhelmed, stressed, emotionally exhausted and physically sick from the stress of life.  From my life of being a mom of two growing kids, a wife and running a household, a corporate professional, a budding entrepreneur, a daughter, a friend, a student; essentially trying to do and be everything to everyone.  My “good girl – rule follower” tendencies kept me pushing harder and further, adding more to my plate, saying “Yes” when I should have said NO, putting the needs of others first, putting myself last, striving to achieve perfection and the “A+” in life.   


While these tendencies did help me achieve many joys and successes in life, they also helped me get an “A+” in falling flat on my face.  Hence the burnout and physical issues that didn’t really have a “reason” for happening. 

  • I ignored all the signals from my body - migraines, bells palsy, eye twitching, facial numbness, ulcers, UTI's, emergency gallbladder removal, insomnia. 

  • I ignored all the emotional signals - frustration, anxiety, anger, resentment, depression.


Oh, stress…. you sneaky shi@t.


Thus, began my intentional journey to get better, to feel happier, to become healthier and get my life in order.  I needed help, I needed accountability, I needed a new and different way of being.  A way of being that supported and nourished my life, my career, and the well-being of my family.


Coaching, energetics, self-help books, and meditation have been HUGE to my personal and professional healing and empowerment.  I have worked with amazing coaches, mentors, and practitioners over the past decade.  I have invested in myself with self-care, furthered my education through Energetic and Coaching certifications, and attended countless programs to further my understanding in the self-care, self-discovery, and self-development world. 

Initially, this was for me…so I could get better. 


Eventually, it lit the fire within to be of service to YOU to help you on your journey.  

After 25+ years as a leader in the corporate world, I decided that it was time to “Walk the Talk” and follow my passion for helping people at a personal and professional level.  Retiring from the ‘corporate travel industry’ and moving into the ‘empowering people industry’ has been a HUGE journey filled with so many gifts of learning. 


My heart is happy and I am SO EXCITED to connect with you on your journey!
