About the Speaker: Jen Emswiler, PMP


Jen Emswiler, PMP, is the Founder and CEO of Thought Leader. Thought Leader aims to bring mindfulness to teams and individuals that previously had limited access to world-class mindfulness tools and techniques. Jen graduated summa cum laude from James Madison University with her Bachelor’s in Social Work, where she was the recipient of the James Madison University Academic Scholar of the Year Award.

Jen first leveraged the power of mindfulness as a Social Worker in the DC Metro area where she worked to improve the mental health of individuals and families facing profound challenges.

Jen was born and raised in Washington, DC, but now proudly embraces her weirdness in Austin, TX with her husband Joe and their two dogs, Monster and Bronco.

Her hope is to inspire you, encourage you and empower you to begin your journey with mindfulness.
