Emelie Johnson Vegh
Emelie runs Carpe Momentum together with her colleague 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.
Emelie studied to be a high school teacher in English and Swedish at Lund University, together with further studies of both linguistics and children’s literature. She does work as a translator, from Swedish to English and vice versa, and from Norwegian/Danish to Swedish/English. She also writes fiction novels for both adults and children. Emelie enjoys many different sports and finding ways to breaking them down and teaching them to others, both adults and children.
The Carpe Momentum colleagues teach seminars on the general principles of behavior and learning, as well as sport specific seminars, and coach trainers in the art of structuring great training sessions regardless of the venue or the species. Their book Agility Right from the Start was published by Karen Pryor Clicker Training (KPCT) in 2010. The book outlines Emelie and Eva’s philosophy and structured approach to training, making it a worthy read not only for agility enthusiasts.
”E&E” are part of the Clicker Expo faculty. In addition, they are the first TAGteach faculty in Europe and they introduced TAGteach to Scandinavia in 2005. They offer consultations and workshops about applying positive reinforcement based strategies with human learners in all imaginable areas. E&E have experience of a variety of venues, from teaching puppy classes to competing at top national levels in agility and obedience (with several dogs of various breeds) and have been working together since 1998.
