Each day, Emily makes it a priority to help customers reach their goals. She leads a Customer Success team of four and provides her team with the resources they need to help their customers. Together, they empower individuals to be wellness champions for their organizations.
In the true Walker Tracker spirit, Emily took the time during a recent walk to chat and share about herself.
A Legacy of Health & Wellness
Emily’s childhood was filled with opportunities to develop a balanced approach to wellness. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay area she was a quiet and studious kid, with a penchant for reading, completing puzzles, and watching movies. Days were filled with family bike rides and tennis matches with her dad. Her parents used meals as an opportunity to showcase what a balanced diet looked like.
Emily’s grandmother taught her to embrace gratitude by encouraging her and her sister to pray in thanksgiving for all they had. She shared that, “I have a blessed life, and I try not to forget this.”
Today, the joy of physical activity continues to run deep in Emily’s family. Her sister is a certified personal trainer, her dad is an avid road cyclist, and her mom goes for multiple walks a day. Emily enjoys staying active by going for walks in her neighborhood most days. She also enjoy at-home workouts, bike rides, and hiking.
The Journey to Walker Tracker
Her career with Walker Tracker began in 2017. Emily notes that while the company has grown and changed in the past five years, one thing has remained the same. The Walker Tracker mission, the ‘why,’ has stayed constant: empowering customers to build wellness into their culture so they can live healthier and happier lives. She describes her colleagues as “a supportive group of people that want to serve others.”
She went on to share that, “it’s a great place to work. It matches up with my values of personal growth, promoting the idea that everyone can be healthy and well, and we don’t have to put ourselves in a box of what wellness has to look like.
What’s Emily’s biggest advice after five years in the health and wellness industry ? “Take breaks! Your mind and body need them.”
What is the last book you read?
The last book I completed was The Women of the Bible Speak by Shannon Bream. I did enjoy it. There is so much to learn about the Bible. I also read and enjoyed the beginning of the Hunchback of Notre Dome before having to return it to the library. I’m a slow reader!
Favorite place you ever travelled to?
I went to London with my sister. We had so much fun taking the Tube and getting to know a different kind of city. It’s very accessible.
What’s been your biggest takeaway from working at Walker Tracker?
I’ve definitely grown a lot, personally and professionally. One thing that has been important is the idea of continuing to reinvent and improve upon what’s going on. We can’t keep things the way they are— we need to evaluate how things can be better.
What are a couple of things on your bucket list?
I want to learn how to sew and make my own clothes.
Could you share a fun fact about yourself?
I’ve never broken a bone.
