I am Emma B. Perez
Career and Life Design Coach for Teens

My Story

I’m a mentor who specializes in helping teens and young adults craft who they want to be and how they will impact the world.
I began this path a decade ago working in admissions at a University. Before too long I moved on to facilitating college and career workshops at dozens of high schools all over the Atlanta Metro area for tens of thousands of students. Now I work directly with families. With my program Life Quest®, I guide students through self-discovery, career exploration, and vision creation. This leads young people to a future that allows them to live thriving and fulfilling lives.

Upon working directly with teachers in high schools, I saw first-hand how different school was from what I remembered. I began to ponder what school could be like for young people with a simple shift in the goal of education. My book, "What's the Point of School: Ed Transformation, A Matter of Life and Death" takes a look at the current goal of the American education system, how it came to be, and what effects it has on our children's wellbeing and future.

The book also suggests how a shift in the purpose and goal of education can have a positive domino effect for the wellbeing of students, society, the economy, and the future of work. During the composition of the book, I formulated the Five Happy Healthy Elements. By focusing on these elements I believe we have the potential to make this education transformation come to fruition. You can learn more about the Five Happy Healthy Elements by reading my book, and you can learn more about my other projects by exploring this website.
