Your Presenter

Ilene Dillon, MSW, is the founder of Emotional Mastery for Life. She supports others as an “Emotional Mastery Expert,” drawing from her extensive expertise and her own life experiences.

Ilene learned how to master her emotions out of her years-long quest to conquer her own out-of-control emotions that developed as a result of a chaotic early life. She discovered how emotions work, what they are for, and practical and effective ways to put emotions under her direction, rather than allowing them to run her life. She now assists others on their journey to master emotions, a quest that all people have come to earth to conduct.
