Emily at Best is a multi-faceted songwriter, musician, producer, engineer, and visual artist hailing from Los Angeles, CA. Her name is derived from her desire to emphasize how we are all working towards being the best version of ourselves, until the day we die. Emily doesn’t claim to currently be at her best– it is the sum of highs, lows, and in-betweens that comprise who she is. Music and visual art are the mediums with which Emily chooses to express herself and interpret the world around her. She is comforted and uplifted by the endless possibilities of sound and color. She began writing songs at the age of ten during a time of grief. Songwriting became a powerful outlet of healing for her, and continues to help her understand, accept, and grow through her experiences. Her intention in releasing music is to help others find their way through their own processes of healing.
Emily recently graduated from Berklee College of Music, receiving her degree in Professional Music with a concentration in Contemporary Writing and Production and a minor in Music Technology.

Founder of Chaos to Cured Kirk Patrick Miller: Embrace Your Neurostyle and Beyond

“NEVER GIVE UP.”- Kirk Patrick Miller

Let’s GO Mental Health Awareness, EVERYDAY, not just May!

It is an absolute honor to welcome back Founder Chaos To Cured Kirk Patrick Miller to the Embrace Your Neurostyle and Beyond Series.  Kirk is a champion of self awareness and perception and has inspired me with his wisdom views and humble shares since 2016 on and off shows.

Kirk’s vision, creativity, and INTEGRATION of his earth experiences including his failures and successes will leave you and your loved ones INSPIRED and filled with HOPE:

Kirk Patrick Miller is an award nominated author and violinist. Suffering with bipolar one, ADHD, OCD, and generalized anxiety, his life was upended when he refused to give in to the diagnoses he was labeled with. After becoming the first medically documented case of full remission from bipolar, due to his unique endocrine treatment method he was asked to write his memoir, “Chaos to Cured.”

Now over a decade after writing his memoir he stands as a testament to hope and perseverance. Stable and successful, Mr. Miller runs a music institute, is a professional painter, author, speaker, and radio personality.

His desire to help others find hope comes from being granted a second chance he believes everyone deserves. First and foremost he stands against shame and judgment of any kind.

Mr. Miller believes that each and every individual can attain their potential with work, faith in themselves, and the understanding that what is often seen as a weakness is actually our greatest source of power. He stands firm in his belief that the key to living a fulfilling life is in accepting and loving the person we are, all while turning our hardships into wisdom, love, and compassion for all.
