My work is all about helping people make more meaningful connections and giving people the tools to overcome challenges that get in the way. I work with clients on Brainstates Management™, unconscious bias, Personal Leadership™ and Intercultural Conflict Styles™, always pointing individuals and teams towards the best version of themselves. To do this, I call upon cutting edge break throughs in neuroscience, a decade of training and consulting experience, 2 Masters degrees in topics related to culture and communication, and personal stories from her time living and working in over 30 countries. In 2011, I founded ReFresh Communication. Read more below!

“Emily is a transformational leader who worked passionately with us to explore our differences and biases. If you ever get a chance to attend one of Emily’s programs, you will walk away a better person than you started.”
-Michael P. Wallace EFO, MBA, MA/Retired Deputy Fire Chief Salem, NH
I believe that when we prioritize our relationships, we thrive. Relationships are the key to our work and therefore the key to creating positive change in the world. When we begin to truly understand how we each perceive and make sense of the world, our thoughts naturally become less critical of others because we see that we are each fighting a hard battle. This understanding seeps into our environment, and we begin to interact with more empathy, compassion and curiosity. We recognize that we all have fears and insecurities. When we prioritize relationships, these inner aspects become points of connection, instead of forces that drive us apart. I founded ReFresh knowing that if we can develop supportive relationships in our immediate surroundings, we will help create a world with less violence.
Emily is humble, aware, dynamic, and highly skilled in delivering trainings on what can easily be difficult and emotionally charged topics.
- Jaime Amling, Associate Program Director of Staffing, Colorado Outward Bound School
