Through writing and sharing her story of the passion and heartbreak she experienced in the world of salsa dancing, she was inspired to change careers, allowing her to live more authentically in her purpose.

Her mission is to assist individuals who feel stuck after a breakup, divorce, or relationship in turning these challenging moments into opportunities for self-discovery so they can not only accept their authentic self but create a hopeful and exciting vision for their present and future. 

Emmi specializes in empowering her clients to develop essential self-leadership skills through her multiple published guided journals, tangible action steps, and teaching people how to craft and own their personal narratives. Through her guidance, individuals can cultivate a renewed sense of self, increased confidence, and embark on the path towards the stress-free life they envision.
