I am a self-professed geek!
And I'm not even a little ashamed to admit it!
Learning never stops for me, whether I'm learning from clients, students, or sitting in class to advance my own knowledge and skills.
You can also find me devouring all kinds of books on mind-body-spirit growth and transformation.

Knowledge is no fun unless I share it with YOU!
"Certified Geek" is not an official title on my resume (though maybe it should be...).
I'm so excited to share my knowledge with you that our first chat is on the house.
Want to pick my brain? Let's chat!
I can't wait to hear your story!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"As a health coach, Julie knows how to get to the root of a problem and how to identify and comprehensibly explain what I can do to get better. However, I know that both my mental and physical health are important to her, and this shines through in how she
talks with me as a life coach as well.
Julie encouraged me to start a journal to record workouts, meals, etc., a practice that has promoted mindfulness and organization in my life. She also suggests a practice of goal-setting that is both rewarding and motivating, and always talks to me about what little steps I can take to become a better athlete and person. Julie’s holistic and specialized approach to coaching reflects a passion for her job and her clients’ wellbeing. I am so thankful for everything that Julie has been able to do for me, and I know that she can do the same amazing things in the lives of many others!"
