Emily Berheide, OTR/L, M.Ed. is a Talent Discovery Specialist and Transition Consultant and founder of Finding Futures Consulting.  Emily is passionate about working with young people to recognize their true potential.  She is inspired by their energy and aliveness and loves being a guide for youth to discover their unique areas of talent and the world of possibilities that is wide open for their futures!  Emily believes that ALL human beings have natural talents and when they are nurtured and valued, lead to happy and successful lives.  

In her role as a Transition Consultant, Emily works with a diverse population of youth in middle school, high school as well as transition programs.
