About: Welcome


We had a great experience with Connect For and members of the Birch Construction team. I would recommend Connect For to anyone looking to empower their teams in building meaningful relationships.

Tyler Berns, Partner at Birch Construction

Emily provides great information and is so helpful to Molly as she develops her BD foundation. I could never provide Molly with this type of content and guidance. 

Starting Connect For when she did was uncanny timing for our needs! Thanks for the help!

Michael Moore, Principal and Managing Director or Square Peg Design

Emily has a rare combination of introspective listening and inhuman levels of positivity which are continuously displayed in every interaction. 

Her effortless and natural ability to motivate leads me to believe she is a superhero, and her superpower is ‘inspirational joy’.

(Be warned, it will make you melt)

Chip Impastato, Principal / Partner, Studio Outside Landscape Architecture

Thank you, Emily, for helping us take a deep dive into discovering our purpose, values, and mission.  
You have shown us the value of vulnerability and why that is so important to establishing our business development plan. 
We feel equipped to take the next step towards our business’s growth with intention and purpose. You are a wonderful resource and light!

Emily Henry, Founder of Connect For:

Having spent my career in Landscape Architecture, I have had the opportunity to focus on building relationships within the Design and Development industry.  

I love people and impacting the community and with Connect For, I now have the pleasure of dedicating my talents to building relationships and amplifying stories that shape the lives and careers of individuals and organizations. 

Personally, I am a mother of two wild, curly redheads and a (shockingly) amateur gardener.
