Emily Aron grew up playing basketball and always deeply loved sports and what they represented. Through life's ups & downs, she also became very passionate about mental health and wanted to contribute to its de-stigmatization. Emily’s focus is to assist athletes in reaching their full potential in and outside of sports.
Emily attended Barry University, and graduated with her MS in Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology under the guidance of Dr. Kimberly Shaffer. During her time at Barry, she worked with one of their Division II Teams as their sport psych consultant. She also co-founded a Women in Leadership Development seminar for female student-athletes. Before joining forces with WellPerformance, Emily most recently, did an internship with RJ Performance group in Salt Lake City that was centered around the 8-16-year-old demographic to improve their mental skills, including mental toughness, breathing, body language, confidence, self-talk, and emotional regulation.

"We hired Stu Singer to work with our team and almost immediately saw it pay dividends. First and foremost, he's someone you can trust. Secondly, we spend so much time on our player’s physical development, but sometimes that can't flourish until they learn the necessary mental skills that help them deal with everything that can cloud their thought process. Once Stu starts working with them, it helps lift the fog that prevents players from seeing what's really worth focusing on. I highly recommend that all HS athletes take advantage of Stu's training if they are looking to truly maximize their potential".
