Emily Li Maloney
Educator. Coach. Advocate. Human.
I'm a Special Education Transition Coordinator - guiding students with disabilities through person-centered plans for transitioning out of high school and/or jail, and into post-secondary education and employment. I'm also a Certified Health Coach - passionate about holistic wellness, women's health, integrative medicine and real food. And in my "spare time", I volunteer with CASA of Los Angeles, providing support and advocacy for a child in the dependency system. But most importantly I am Unapologetically Human - experiencing the fullness that is the journey of life through continued exploration of myself and connection with my fellow human beings.
I'm a dreamer, believer, and doer. A lifelong seeker of growth, joy, and wholeheartedness. I like to dance, cook, spend time with my animals, be in nature, watch TV, and dismantle systems of oppression.
I have come to posit two things. One, the optimal human experience is cultivated through intentional nourishment in 5 different areas, what I call the 5 Pillars of Wellness, (Emotional, Physical, Relational, Spiritual, and Societal Wellness). And two, within life transitions lie our greatest potential to transform the ways in which we think, feel, and live
Whether I am health coaching, transition planning, providing advocacy, or working on myself, I have found that nourishing the 5 Pillars of Wellness, especially during life transitions, gives way to our greatest potential for health, happiness, and fulfillment.
