Someone asked me what I want for others. I simply stated, “I want people to emanate their true self.” So it started with the word emanate on my whiteboard. A year later, I thought about it again, and wrote down the definition of emanate. The word emanate originates from the Latin ēmānātus, meaning having flowed out or come forth, emerge and radiate. Then I wrote, “Our thoughts, feelings, and behavior emanate from the mind. The real work is to explore the way we think.”
MN8 Consulting emerged for this reason. MN8 is an organization that believes when people learn to “think about their thinking” their true self emerges and contributes to their mental wellbeing. The mind is the source of real change.
Emanate your true self
Zuica facilitated professional development for instructional technology coaches and technical support staff in our district. It took our team to the next level in customer service. She deepened our understanding of motivation and identifying people’s motivations as a way to connect and support them. She helped us practice skills in conflict management and handling conflict in positive and constructive ways. This makes us better and creates a more healthy learning and work environment.

Hi, I’m Zuica
As a professional, I began my career as a special education teacher, learning very quickly about the untapped potential of individuals. I was driven by questions such as why do people behave the way they do? What really drives people to reach their full potential and give them the courage to grow. I continued my journey in my career as a behavior specialist, counselor and Director of Special Education. Lived in the Midwest all my life, I am typically surrounded by family and friends, great coffee, and good books. I love to serve and travel and have lead a Global International Teacher Conference in the Dominican Republic impacting more than 200 Dominican Republic Educators.
I’m also a licensed therapist, and:
- Gallup Strengths Coach
- Certified Integrative Enneagram Coach
- Leadership Circle Profile Certified Coach
- Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile Certified Practitioner
- Myers Briggs Certified Coach
- Appreciative Inquiry Certified Facilitator
I really gravitate toward strong women, the Michelle Obamas and Oprahs of the world that I feel are really assertive, they connect with people. They’re eloquent speakers. They’re confident, they’re kind. I just want to learn from them and emulate what they do. In my first meeting with Zuica, I felt that she was one of those people.
