Julie has been speaking for women, mom’s, and small business audiences for 8 years. As a lifelong learner Julie loves to share the stories and lessons of her life’s journey with vulnerability and authenticity. She and her husband are celebrating 20 years of marriage (backpacking!) and are currently experiencing the delightful unpredictability of parenting two teens and one tween. Oh and the joys of a spazy dog too. :)

Becoming “Creative” Inside the Boundaries of Your Life
Becoming Creative isn't just for the artist, photographer, writer, musician, etc. Julie is creative in the traditional sense, but her passion is to inspire women to nurture their own life experiences and gifts. Becoming Creative means finding ways to incorporate the things that are meaningful to them within the boundaries of their season, their circumstances and their gifts. Julie inspires her audience to make time for the things that make their soul sing at a level that is realistic and meaningful for their current season.

Julie uses her experience from 19 years as a small business owner and currently as a Small Business Coach to provide inspiration, practical ideas, questions, and resources for thinking through how to start that side gig. She believes everyone has life experience and skills that could be turned into a business, but not everyone knows where to start.
