Emily Ann Peterson is an author, singer/songwriter, and founder of the School of Bravery - a lab for creative visionaries.

In an act of neurological defiance, she expanded into wider mediums and broke through her creative glass ceiling, opening the door to limitless possibilities through songwriting.
