About PARIS BY EMY & Emy
With a corporate background of more than 15 years and a Master’s degree from the Sorbonne Business School, Emy is an entrepreneur who decided to focus on what she loves the most :
- To enjoy Paris the City of Lights
- To share cultures
- To create social links
Born in the French Alps, with 5 years’ experience during her twenties in the United States of America (based in Cincinnati, visited Detroit, Chicago, NYC, Washington DC, & San Francisco) she has lived in Paris since 2005.
In the United States of America, she was strongly involved in worldwide, multicultural communities of locals, international students, expatriates organizations such as the French American Chamber of Commerce et Procter & Gamble international workers community, both in Cincinnati. She was immersed for 5 years in a multitude of cultures, genders, religions, nationalities in respect, dialogue and peace; above all in tremendous Lighting Up and all united to share an experience in the United States by living, studying and working there. Even today, this experience and those friendships are still alive.
Since 1956, Paris is twinned with a single city in the world which is Rome.
Baptized in 2017 Paris on Easter night, Emy is Catholic, reform oriented, ecumenical and interfaith dialogue minded. Emy has Yves Congar (April 13, 1904 – June 22, 1995) as spiritual father, who was a French Dominican brother, priest and theologian, known for his influence at Vatican Council II in the 1960s and for his theological approaches to the Holy Spirit, in ecclesiology (seeking a balance between the legal and spiritual dimensions of the Church) and ecumenism (he was a great admirer of Luther and had tirelessly worked for the reconciliation of Christians). During the five years of captivity he spent in Germany as a prisoner of war, the Dominican did not stop preaching against Nazism, which earned him a special regime in a fortress. Yves Congar, writing in 1968 to the secretariat of the French episcopate, declared about the contraceptive pill: “I cannot really judge that spouses who have exercised or exercise a reasonable and generous paternity are contravening the will. of God if, to space out or avoid a new birth (an intention that Humanæ Vitæ recognizes as legitimate), they use an artificial means that is safer than periodic abstinence ”. He was created cardinal of the Catholic Church by Pope John Paul II in 1994 shortly before his death in 1995 when his funeral took place at Notre Dame de Paris. He is one of the most influential Catholic theologians of the 20th century. An exceptional and eternal rebel stature, whose implicit motto, ecclesia semper reformanda (the Church is still to be reformed), remains very current. Moreover, she is a strong follower of James J. Martin SJ (born December 29, 1960) an American Jesuit priest, writer, and editor-at-large of the Jesuit magazine America. In 2017, Pope Francis appointed Father Martin as a consultant to the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communications. Father Martin’s outreach to the LGBT community, supported by PARIS BY EMY, has drawn a strong backlash from conservative Catholics. He was one of the first Catholics who spoke out in May 2020 regarding Georges Floyd death against racism, hate and any form of discrimination. He has also established himself as the defender of life to respect social distances and the wearing of a mask, citing Saint Thomas Aquinas among others, Doctor of the Church who taught at the Sorbonne where the theology, the law, the medicine and the arts were taught as a corporation associated with the cathedral school of Notre Dame de Paris. He is a New York Times Best Selling author and frequent commentator on the life and teachings of Jesus, and on Ignatian spirituality as inspired by the life and teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.
On August 15, 1534, Saint Ignatius of Loyola at the end of the mass celebrated in Montmartre in the crypt of the Saint Denis martyrium, pronounced with 6 other priests the 2 vows of poverty and chastity. It was the first act of an apostolic project giving birth of few years later the Society of Jesus, les Jésuites, like our actual Pope Francis.
Francis urge to support more the poorest, the outcasts and to fight social inequalities, social injustice. It is the clearest and strongest teachings of Christ. He also wants to reform :
- The way Catholic LGBT are considered within the Church
- The possibility to Catholic divorced people to take the Eucharist
- The married deacons to become priest and preach, celebrate
In addition, Pope Francis wants to emphasize :
- The dialogue, peace and respect within all Faiths from Vatican Council II by John Paul II
- The continuity of the ecumenism from Vatican Council II by John Paul II
- The role of women in the Church as a religious woman, nuns and as Catholic lay women
As a Catholic woman and Holocaust survivor’s grand-daughter, Emy strongly believes that our individual actions and mindsets have an impact on our society. Collectively, each of us can help to create a better world regardless your gender, color, religion, or nationality.
She travelled to many corners of the world, such as Europe, Africa, North America & the Middle East.
Having friends visiting her in Paris, she had this idea of PARIS BY EMY. In addition, loving Paris and multicultural exchanges, she has founded PARIS BY EMY, a company dedicated to planning personalized vacation packages with private tours and personalized services.
Her passion for creating unique tailor made Paris Trip for her clients, with a social cohesion, made with a genuine French culture insight, is PARIS BY EMY strongest ability.

- No Platform No AI No Modern Slavery
All our private tours are unique, with real human exchanges providing social links. There are no platforms, no already-made tours. Platforms with AI should not desecrate the work of a person, of a company, an organization capable of creating rich human values for every individual and the whole society : employment, growth & social well-being.
In addition, AI shall serve the entire society and no algorithm should decide for you, impose a way of thinking, living and certainly not giving pressure for sur-consumption and compulsive buy. Stephen Hawking expressed his concern during a Web Summit in 2017. He cautioned the human race to be well-prepared to tackle the after-effects of AI. We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. We expect the same high standards from all of our suppliers and other business partners. To respect each individual, clients and providers.
We value human intelligence collective. From Antiquity, Aristotle already posed the question of a human collective intelligence: “it is indeed possible that the majority, each member of which is not virtuous, united together is better than the elite, not separately but collectively […]. Since there are so many of them, each has a share of virtue and wisdom, and from that meeting, the mass becomes like one man, with many feet, and several hands, and provided with many sensations, and so does the same for his character and intelligence. “(Aristotle, extract from Politics, book III, chapter XI). Unlocking human collective intelligence to sustainably boost every individual and the whole society instead of an elite supporting by AI to gain only for itself wealth, growth & social well-being while enslaving individuals, clients or providers.
The City of Paris is developing public policies around solidarity, economic development, the preservation of the environment, biodiversity, the circular economy, the development of each individual, social cohesion and solidarity between territories and generations, as well as responsible production and consumption methods.
