She is

A 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 bachelor’s degree in psychology and master’s degree in counseling psychology. She currently writes for DailyGood, Baltimore STYLE Magazine, No Sidebar, and Peacebeam.

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), petting the world’s cats and dogs, and making the best desserts.
