MEET EMILY

MSEd, Educational Psych
ICF ACC
ADHD Coach
Gallup Strengths Coach
&
All-Around Champion
for Others!

Learning is my biggest passion. Whether it is formal learning in a classroom or just learning how to love someone better, I am always interested in the mysteries of the world around me. I have always stayed curious, even in the dark times of my life. Seeking a deeper understanding and staying present with my people has always been what pulled me through.

 

While the thing that sets me apart from other coaches is definitely my level of education, training & experience, it's all the informal learning and skills I gained hustling in New York City through graduate school and my 20's as a hospitality server, psychologist intern, and tarot reader that taught me everything I know about how to serve others and embrace the unique diversity of each person.

 

I am an active member of the coaching community at-large and serve on various boards and committees with the goal of pushing this profession forward and maintaining an active commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, values, and social justice.

 

I have a passion for training & development and am moving into more spaces of speaking, teaching, and instruction for other professionals.

 

When I'm not coaching I love learning about gardening in my local community garden! I can often be found cuddling a handsome tuxedo cat named Boo or power walking to Beyoncé.
