AboutProgress ,

A rare woman

Dr. Julie is a rare woman, and one that the world needs more of. She has a GIFT to distill big concepts into bite-sized messaging, to make lasting impact with few words, and to speak to an audience (including me) who has needed her perspective. She has made me feel less alone, she’s empowered me to speak up, and she’s supported my personal struggles. Her podcast is no different. It’s very well done and I love every single one.
