She is

About

About PageA lighthearted creative who pauses to take note. Of laughter, color, conversation, open doors, and finer details. A Midwest Native and Mid-Atlantic Transplant, Emily finds beauty in

Natural surroundings.

Order and disarray.

Movement and stillness.

Stories told in snapshots.

And in words.

Words have always been her way, and on a whim or a nudge, she gradually took to blogging. A Soul Awake is a haven for anyone who believes that

Less is more.

Self-care is never selfish.

Resiliency is a superpower.

And the present is where the magic happens.

Emily earned her master’s degree in counseling psychology and is a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor and freelance writer. She currently writes for Baltimore STYLE Magazine, DailyGood, No Sidebar, and Peacebeam.

As an active minimalist and mindfulness seeker, Emily takes delight in experiences over extravagances, and thrives in warm, open spaces that reflect her values. She has been studying and practicing mindfulness for several years, and continuously strives to weave its foundations into her relationships, work, and daily living.

Emily is skilled in working with people of a variety of cultures and backgrounds, and aspires to help them discover their unique strengths while nourishing their capacity for growth, engagement, and fulfillment.

When she’s not behind the lens or keyboard, you’ll find her

Chasing the sun.

Ticking books off her to-read list (often with a cup of tea in hand.)

Playing with her sweet pup, Lyla.

And making the best desserts.
