MEET EMILY

I am a serial entrepreneur currently figuring out my next steps. After immigrating to the US, I opened my first company 22 years ago together with my ex-husband. Our company was in healthcare staffing and we could never have imagined that it would grow as much as it did. Being a female entrepreneur was not any kind of achievement at the time, but it’s something that I have become interested in since. We successfully sold to a publicly traded company by the end of 2015. I loved growing the business, but I knew I wanted my next chapter to be focused on something that empowered women and that I would love doing. I opened Petaloom in 2017, specializing in plant based corporate gifts and "successfully "closed it a year later. Having always loved coming up with new directions, I am now taking some time to let inspiration strike

Q & A

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO SPEND YOUR FREE TIME?
Read, cook,and travel. Reading has always been a passion of mine, and I love that you can do it anywhere and anytime. Cooking is a newfound love. For a long time I was not only a good cook, I was afraid of cooking. I am not sure what changed, but in the last five years cooking became quite a creative outlet for me. Adding a little bit of this and a little bit of that, combining different ingredients and incorporating different influences has become a major pastime. Finally, travel has been a mainstay throughout my life. I absolutely love connecting with people from different cultures and hearing their stories. Whether it is a short trip or a long distance journey, I always come back with some answers.

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST BUSINESS NEED?

I am interested in helping none-profits or socially responsible companies whose focus is on environmental issues and/or helping provide access to education (and re-education) for women. Looking for collaborations and a socially-minded community.

WHAT DOES BEING LIBERATED MEAN TO YOU?
Being liberated means living in agreement with yourself, making decisions that feel right for you. Living from a place of love and not fear. Seeing your life as a journey and having deep appreciation for all it brings. Also having enough courage to take responsibility for your own mistakes and see them as learning opportunities without blame.
