Julie started her healing profession as a Physical Therapist Assistant, loving her work with stroke, spinal cord and head injury patients during very pivotal moments during their lives. During her 7 year run as a PTA, she honed her skills on not only physically rehabilitating people to their fullest potential after devastating injury, but also developed her own passion for truly appreciating the abilities of the human body to heal, and the ability of the human spirit to overcome unimaginable circumstances.
During this period, Julie had two beautiful daughters. After 7 years of working outside the home she became a full time “mom/domestic engineer/goddess”. While she enjoyed every moment of this, she missed the healing profession. After her youngest went to school full time, Julie, a self-proclaimed “body nerd”, went back to school as well, earning her massage therapy license. During her schooling she developed a more comprehensive knowledge of the body as a whole and not as just “injured parts”. She learned the effects of physical and emotional stress on the body, and how she could assist people in working through pain using various modalities of massage and bodywork. In 2019 Julie has added infrared, or cold laser therapy to her tool kit.
During her career as a massage therapist she listened and learned about her clients and felt compelled to do even more to facilitate wellness. In 2012 she earned her health coaching certification, and in 2018 earned her life coaching certification. As a Holistic Life Coach, Julie coaches people toward their own ability to not only grow from their life experiences, but to also feel supported and inspired to make a life that brings fulfillment and purpose to their journey, especially during transitional times in life.
JulIe lives her journey along side her clients, learning, sharing with, and nurturing each person she interacts with. She feels beyond blessed to be working in a career that feeds her passion to help and to heal.
