Evy is also one of the foremost experts on fear and knows when it serves us and when it hinders us. Fear can be the fuel that spurs us on to superhuman achievement, or it can be the fodder for divisiveness, distrust, and paralysis.

Drawing from her training and experiences with the most elite security force in the world, she teaches how to keep fear at bay and make strategic decisions.

Bush, William J. Clinton and George H. Bush. She worked complex criminal investigations and undercover operations, executed search and arrest warrants, and investigated both violent and financial crimes. Additionally, Evy was an interrogator for the agency’s elite polygraph unit and trained by the Department of Defense in the art and science of lie detection, human behavior, and cognitive influence.
Evy holds a Master of Science from Columbia University in Journalism, a Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology from Argosy University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Overseas Studies from Hofstra University.
