"May your choices reflect your hopes,
not your fears."
Designing the impact you want to create takes courage, awareness of what is important to you, and the ability to make conscious choices. I help people uncover what is standing in their way, learn how to leverage their strengths to overcome obstacles, and embrace challenges in pursuit of their goals.
What is coaching?
Coaching is a collaboration that will help you learn about yourself and achieve your ambitions.

Coaching is a commitment to change. The coaching process focuses on removing barriers and fulfilling a client's objective--whether taking a career to the next level or charting out a new direction.
A coach listens, asks thought-provoking questions, helps brainstorm ideas and builds structure around a client's goals. You--the client--learn through deep reflection and create new habits to support the change you are seeking. Coaching leverages your strengths and talents as you design your future.
As your coach my purpose is to help you succeed. I don't give you the answers, I help you uncover your answers. We talk about where you want to be and what is standing in the way. We explore different perspectives and possibilities as you create an action plan to move forward.
My background gives me insight into the challenges faced by leaders—and emerging leaders. During more than twenty years in Fortune 500 companies, I developed winning strategies, managed a P&L, and built high-performing teams. I succeeded in complex environments, solving business problems and delivering results. My progress to executive positions gives me first-hand knowledge of the important role leadership plays in developing talent and delivering results.
My passion is helping people achieve their goals. I combine my experience as a leader and a coach to help my clients realize their potential. I will ask the tough questions and help you connect to possibilities—empowering you to make conscious choices. I work with clients across Fortune 500 companies, educational institutions, privately held companies and nonprofits.
I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) and an accredited member of the International Coaching Federation (ACC), with BA in Economics from Emory University and an MBA from the University of Michigan.
“I started working with Julia when I was going through a transition phase in my career. She guided me to clearly define my goals and lay out the approach. Her coaching style is very adaptable. She listened when I just needed to pour my thoughts out, she asked questions that help me see the core of what I needed to solve, and most of of all, her advice on working toward my goals has been incredibly helpful. I am very grateful for the opportunity working with Julia—her coaching has made what would‘ve been a tough challenge become an achievable and enjoyable milestone in my career.“

"Julia did an amazing job helping me understand my professional values and sorting through competing priorities. Thanks to her coaching, I also reached a higher level of clarity when it comes to my career path. I now make a bigger impact on the people that I work with and my community."
- Director Product Management, Financial Services
"I found coaching even more helpful than I thought it would be. The sessions were invaluable for clarifying my concerns, questions and goals, for making plans, and providing the accountability I need. I started without a clear picture of what I wanted to change, and Julia was able to help me prioritize and set reasonable and realistic goals for myself. Her approach is insightful, compassionate and straightforward, and it is always a relief to talk things through with her. I'm amazed at her ability to see the big picture of the situations I'm describing to her. We have talked about professional, personal and health concerns, and Julia has been great with all of them."
