Emelie Johnson Vegh
Emelie works in the collaboration Carpe Momentum together with Eva Bertilsson. Their goal is to help people acquire knowledge and skills in science-based, modern, humane, and empowering teaching strategies for the benefit of learners of all species.
Within Carpe Momentum she teaches seminars on the general principles of behavior and learning, coaches trainers in the skill of creating great training sessions regardless of venue or species. Together with Eva, she published the book Agility Right From the Start (Sunshine Books, 2010). The book outlines the colleagues’ philosophy and structured approach to training, making it a worthy read not only for agility enthusiasts. Emelie has been part of the Clicker Expo faculty for many years, teaching together with Eva. “E&E” also introduced TAGteach to Scandinavia in 2005 and were the first European TAGteach faculty.

She writes fiction for both children and adults and also does work as a translator and editor, reveling in finding ways to tell stories and make information available to a great many people.
