2017 Up & Coming Woman of the Year in Non-Profit – Amelia Kowalisyn

Amelia Kowalisyn – Founder & Director at Emma’s Footprints

True empathy and understanding are often forged from pain. But rather than quietly suffer tragedy, a true influential woman uses that pain as a catalyst to build something greater than themselves that can help guide others through similar experiences. That’s Amelia’s mission with Emma’s Footprints, an organization that was founded after the loss of Amelia’s newborn daughter Emma.

Today, Emma’s Footprints works to guide other NICU families through their own tragedies by providing comfort, support, care packages, awareness, and a network of understanding. Countless families across the country now have someone to turn to because of Amelia’s efforts.
