Stephen Covey got it right: “Systems are perfectly designed to get the results they are getting”. Emily loves partnering with leaders and teams who are ready to rethink their systems and redefine their organizations. She leverages her two decades of professional leadership experience, across multiple industries, to help leaders seize opportunities and change their realities. A seasoned operations leader, with expertise in program implementation and systems development, Emily empowers others to break through the fear, discomfort, and confusion that change often presents to achieve sustainable success and happiness.
As a founder and operator of two businesses of her own, including a multi-state firm, she understands both the pressure and responsibility of ownership…and the rush of entrepreneurialism. Emily knows how important it is to have a thought partner in that work who can provide accountability and focus, and she is passionate about offering her scrappy, persistent support to her HTM firms. Her work has also included compliance implementation with boards, accrediting bodies, authorizers, and state & federal agencies.
Having achieved her own goal of never shoveling snow again, Emily lives in Phoenix, Arizona where she balances a love/hate relationship renovating her mid-century modern home. A two-time University of Iowa graduate, she endures a dysfunctional relationship with Hawkeye football in a home with an (ugh – eye roll) Ohio State fan. She’s been living vicariously through Stanley Tucci during the pandemic and can’t wait to recreate Searching for Italy with her family. To recharge, she can be found gardening, reading, hiking, and meditating. To give back, she contributes to a variety of non-profit boards and committees that benefit children and families.
