Hey there!

My name is Emily. I come from small-town Iowa and now live in Des Moines, Iowa. 

In 2012, I realized I had a choice.

I could live the life that I “should” live or I could carve my own path and create a life that is all about exploring my curiosities.

I opted for the latter, which has led to remarkable experiences and the most amazing relationships. What I realized is this: when you live in your joy, the success you find (defined by you of course) is unlimited. We are the creators of our own experience every single day.

This small space on the internet is a place to explore topics that interest me, in hopes they also add value to your life.


fun facts

  • I biked across America with a group of strangers in 2012

If you’re into the Enneagram, I’m a seven (to a tee).

If you’re into Life Design, I’m a manifesting generator (where are my MGs?!).

I’m moderately obsessed with building community and do it within my own businesses and others across the country. You can read about that work here.

If you feel inspired to connect, I love chatting in your DMs on Instagram + in email.

So glad you stopped by!
