JAMP™ Transformational Coach
Emily is currently a graduate student in Washington state at Bastyr University studying Naturopathic medicine, Acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Prior to graduate school, Emily graduated from Northern Arizona University with a dual degree in Biology and Modern Languages with an emphasis in German. During her time in Germany while finishing her degree, she immersed herself in the culture. She dabbled in teaching English at elementary level. She worked in the cellular molecular biology department at Max Planck Institute with phototherapy and oncogenes (cancerous DNA) while taking classes at TU Dortmund.
In her free time, she visited other countries, during which she found an Inn that was set up as a hospital that sparked an unexpected curiosity. She was drawn to this unfamiliar system; a medicine that was integrative, individualistic, and included all levels (mental, physical, and energetic) of the self, and wanted to explore it more. Implementing that into her goals as a physician, she now finds her interests lie in chronic diseases, pain management and mind-body medicine. Other interests that inhabit Emily’s time include reading science fiction, planning trips to new places, attempting to grow a green thumb for her tiny medicinal garden, and spending time with family.

EFT Professional and Author, JAMP™ Transformational Coach
Marti Murphy is an Emotional Fitness Coach, Certified EFT Practitioner, and Psychosomatics Practitioner (Body/Mind Connection). Marti has been a life-long spiritual junkie, but nothing worked until she identified her forbidden emotions.
She was exhausting herself “trying” to think positive, under highly stressful financial circumstances, and it wasn’t working. When she gave up “trying” to change, she accessed her forbidden emotions. Forbidden emotions that were attached to her most negative thoughts.
As she gave these emotions full expression, she felt better without “trying” to think positive, and her life changed for the better.
She now specializes in helping her clients resolve conflicts in their personal and business lives, opening their eyes to their forbidden emotions. This helps allow guidance and direction to come through, creating inspired action. As this happens, life unfolds with more grace and ease.

JAMP™ Transformational Coach
Taylor Barnett has lived and traveled all over the world, as a teacher and therapist. While living in Alaska she gained knowledge of how connection can assist people in their mental, physical, and emotional growth. Working with these students allowed her to connect to not only herself, but others, and laid the foundation for how she wanted to contribute to the rest of the world. She felt drawn to deeply intimate, interpersonal work that occurred with kids, adults, and families, and decided to complete a Masters in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. Taylor has worked in domestic violence, foster care, schools, and outpatient treatment centers in both Washington and California.
Currently, Taylor works as a Certified Coach and Psychotherapist. At her practice, she offers Conscious Breathwork, Jungian Advanced Motor Processing, and integrates Somatic psychology and Mindfulness into her clinical work. Taylor is a responsive, reflexive, and embodied counselor that allows for the performative aspect of the body to enter the therapeutic space.
Her mission is to light a spark in the souls of those she works with. This spark guides them back to their truth, warms their heart in love, and energizes their body so they can continue to pass on the spark to others.
“The divine spark within me honors the divine spark within you.”
