Mental Health Mythbusting & the Resiliency of our Industry

Do you ever wonder ‘what is mental health’? Have you been curious about your mental and emotional well-being through the pandemic and now as we approach reintegration?

Come ready to dive deep into your inner health and build authentic connections with your ILEA community during our thoughtful conversation with guest speaker, Abbie Zimmerman, LCSW and Emily Dreblow Rey, CPCC, along with group breakout sessions and some time for networking.

MBB Program Speakers

Emily Dreblow, MBB Program Host, Moderator &
ILEA-NCC Past President (2016-2017)
Professional Coach, 

Emily Dreblow Rey, CPCC is a 16-year event industry entrepreneur, certified Professional Coach and an ILEA-NCC Past President. She is the owner of Soulflower Design Studio, a floral + event design studio in the San Francisco Bay Area. And while she has experienced great success in her floral design business it was not always roses! She has suffered from chronic fatigue, anxiety and burnout and through working with business and wellness coaches, she has been able to tackle some of the roots of her suffering and strengthen the tools and rituals for self care and business + life management. Through these experiences emerged both the wisdom and desire to work with others on their journey through life and business to become a Professional Coach and start SOUL CREATIVE, where her clients include creative entrepreneurs, event professionals and emerging leaders looking to up level their business, boost their confidence during times of change and tap into their inner resources.  Her approach is a balance of business and career coach meets mindful, sage embracing the belief that “we all have the power to create what we most desire sometimes we just need to get quiet, listen and then spring into ACTION.” She enjoys staying active by playing soccer, hiking with her Boston Terrier, doing yoga and traveling, including a recent August 2020 #VanLife trip where she and her husband converted her floral van into camper van and traveled around the Western states for a month.

Abbie Zimmerman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). She received her Masters degree from Hunter School of Social Work in New York City, with q focus on individual psychotherapy. Immediately after graduation in 2001, Abbie moved to San Francisco where she found an amazing network of providers interested in addressing social change and mental health advocacy.

In 2012 she received training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) helping those that had suffered for years with trauma, a way to heal the brain on a more permanent and organic level. EMDR is just one tool Abbie uses in her practice in addition to other approaches including CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and Mindfulness Based Treatment.
