Meet Julie

Let’s Do This Wellness Journey Our Way!

To be completely honest, I tried to write this section about myself in a formal tone. But … it didn’t sound like me. Putting on a façade, trying to do things ‘THE right way’ and to please others is what led me to burnout. That’s why I believe in being authentic and true to our nature —not just for the benefit of those we love, but for the sake of our own well-being.

Let’s commit to being ourselves as we move toward inner peace. I’ll go first: Hi, I’m Julie, and I’m here to help you through your wellness journey—every step of the way.

Watch My Story

Facing Burnout and Bouncing Back

After keeping it to myself for months, in June of 2019 I finally opened up about my own struggle with burnout and the journey I took to reclaim my strength and passion. I’m sharing my story to remind you that it’s totally okay to hit pause, take time to recover, and reclaim your inner peace.  Also, there are more retreats coming! If you are interested please reach out and let me know.
