Emily Olsen

I come from a background in leadership, working to inspire others to realize and reach their full potential, both personally and professionally. Though my work has transitioned from traditional management roles into ones focused on personal transformation and development, I’m still delivering similar teachings. I endeavour to uplift any idea, person, or project that shares knowledge inspires growth and contributes to meaningful community connection.

I am married to a beautiful human being, my lover and friend, Adam. We are raising two beautiful children, Silas and Ella, in W̱SÁNEĆ territory and share in the beauty and wonder of a large extended family. Our puppy, Tui is a natural healer and gets me out daily to walk and meditate in the forest. I mainly eat healthily, sometimes practice yoga, meditate, and pray. I am blessed to have the ability to think positively and am increasingly grateful to have healed my past. To write and speak from my heart, and facilitate events, retreats, workshops, healing circles, and a podcast are all gifts I cherish. I aspire always to be creating and hope the ideas and inspirations from life never cease.
