Simone Harris

Emotional Intelligence Coach, Program Manager

As a Trauma-Informed emotional intelligence coach and steward of Indigenous Science, Simone has worked tenaciously to integrate her wisdom of neuroscience & life experience of Ancestral land-based cultures to support SIYLI in cultivating programs. Her intention is to bring in an ecological way of knowing that supports an emotionally well culture that considers the needs of the individual, the organization, and the communities they are connected to. She began this journey while working at Cook County jail, the largest single-site jail in the U.S., to create, develop, and manage, Wellness programs for the under-served population of 7000+ detainees. She is eager to co-create with individuals on the available pathways to living a more purpose-driven life by using the wisdom of self-awareness and mindfulness practices. Her intent is to continue to use her knowledge of systemic trauma, emotional suppression, and relationship building to support individuals in their journey to achieve peace, even in high-stress environments.
