In this edition, we have the privilege of chatting with the incredible Emily Zufelt, the strong and spirited individual behind the powerful project "What's Your Twenty." We delve into a topic that affects millions worldwide but often goes unnoticed: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Season 2, Episode 22
Emily Zufelt, creator and host of the global mental health podcast, "What's Your Twenty?" is a passionate advocate who has dedicated her career to making a difference in the lives of others. Her journey began with a role at a rape crisis centre in the Public Education sector, where she discovered the power of spoken words to educate and inspire authentic change. During her time at the centre, Emily gained valuable insights into the impact of trauma on individuals and communities, and developed a deep commitment to promoting healing and resilience.
Building on this experience, Emily went on to join a police service, where she served as both a uniformed member and a civilian 911 emergency police dispatcher for over twenty years. Her voice became a familiar presence over the radio, as she worked tirelessly to ensure the safety and well-being of the public and the officers in her care.
Today, with the podcast and as a Certified Trauma & Resiliency Life Coach, Emily has shifted her focus to mental health advocacy, drawing on her extensive knowledge of trauma and its effects to raise awareness about PTSI/PTSD and the importance of post-traumatic growth. Through her work, she seeks to empower individuals who have experienced trauma, and to promote a greater understanding of the challenges they face.
Emily's voice remains a powerful force for change with her passion, dedication, and unwavering commitment to making a difference as she continues to use her platform to educate, inspire, and promote healing in all those she encounters.
