Optima EP works with private and public organizations to help them prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies.

A Planned Approach to the Unexpected

Emergency situations don't wait for response plans, budget allocations and communication strategies to be developed before their impacts are felt, and state and federal resources may not meet the level of support needed in a crisis.

Learn about our team

COVID has been incredibly difficult for the entire population, especially public health workers. I sponsored bringing Optima to Milwaukee County and opened the training session to all our County Public Health agencies. Aimee and Brian have an excellent grasp of the need and the way forward after COVID. I firmly believe that their training is a significant benefit to any that hears it!

Christopher McGowan
Deputy Director of the Milwaukee County Office of Emergency Management

I attended a two-day Group Crisis Intervention Course with Aimee Wollman Nesseth. She has earned my highest respect and endorsement. She expertly packaged and delivered her wealth of knowledge, skills, and expertise into a learning experience that empowered me to serve my law enforcement community with more confidence and deepened capacity.

Aimee and Brian are both knowledgeable and empathetic. Their COVID-19 recovery program provides a safe and beneficial space to reflect on one's experiences in responding professionally to a stressful event. It also offers helpful tools to manage current stressors and improve resiliency to future events. This program was so helpful that it was repeatedly requested by our stakeholders throughout COVID recovery.

From a personal and professional standpoint, healthcare responses can be emotionally and mentally crippling. Aimee and Brian help shed light and provide tools, on the "Now what!?" of how to continue to be quality care providers and still be human.

Coordinator of the North Central Wisconsin Healthcare Emergency Readiness Coalition

I have had the absolute pleasure of working with and receiving training from Aimee and Brian. The content is solid and they balance this great information with humor and intellect. This delivery style leads to a maximum and successful intake of important concepts for public health professionals.

Implementing a Plan for Emergencies

Implementing a Plan

Often clients come to us without an accurate sense of their capabilities or vulnerabilities. The first thing we do is assess your organization's capabilities and risks as this is the baseline for solid planning.

Training Personnel for Emergencies

Training Personnel

It is essential to train the people who will be called upon during an emergency. Roles need to be clearly assigned and embraced so people know what they need to do and can act quickly. These skills need to be learned, refined, and refreshed.
