Emily has been serving on the Board of Directors since 2010. She has been “officially” active in the peacebuilding world when she stepped into the role of Office Manager of the California Headquarters for the Dennis Kucinich for President 2004 campaign. Emily grew up in a family that has worked in the peace building community for at least 3 generations and feels it is in her nature to live and work for greater peace, individually and collectively.
Emily has a B.A. in Psychology from UC Berkeley and has a private practice as a Certified Life Coach based in Northern California. As a coach, Emily works to help people cultivate greater inner peace, to live more authentically and powerfully in their own lives and become aware of the impact they are having, both positive and negative, on themselves and others. “If everyone in the world were committed to the goal of having a positive impact, we would have peace. I believe peace comes from practicing compassion and kindness, for myself and others.”
