Meet Emily Koolen, President & Founder

Hi! I bring the perspective of over 20 years of Senior Human Resources, Facilitation, Training and Coaching experience in sectors including Consulting, IT, Pharma, Supply Chain, Finance, Education & Not for Profit to my clients.  I guide groups and leaders ranging from large multi-nationals to start-up entrepreneurs, all who are trying make an impact in some way.

I am a learner who gleans information from anything. I am a proud Queen’s University Alum with a degree in Psychology. I have continually added to that start of my education with various things including a post graduate diploma in Human Resources, a Professional Solution-Focused Coaching Certificate and other coaching, facilitation and consulting focused training. I am always seeking out new ways to challenge her biases and herself.

I like to be involved in my communities and my professional memberships have included the Human Resources Professional Association(HRPA), Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) and International Coaching Federation (ICF) among others.

I am a natural connector (who has been nicknamed a human “LinkedIn” before), and am passionate about helping others – in whatever work or volunteer capacity possible.

I sometimes have too much energy and usually talk too quickly but I do strive to listen deeply and be very inquisitive. I have a very random assortment of interests and identities including Mom, Partner, Leader, Friend and more.
