JB round bio photo

Hi, I’m Julie. I love connecting people strategy to business strategy!

I’m a wife and mom who traded the corporate grind for entrepreneurship in search of flexibility.  I’m a HR Strategist, Speaker, and Writer with more than a decade of complex Human Resources experience.

I’ve worked in Operations for close to two decades, and I’ve seen A LOT in my career! I serve on the board of directors for my local chapter of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), and I hold dual Human Resource certifications (Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and Society of Human Resource Management-Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP). 

The certifications mean that I have the practical and tactical knowledge to help organizations of all sizes work through all things related to people management and organizational development. I’ve worked with clients internationally, and I’ve worked with local small businesses.  

I live in the Chicagoland area with my husband, teenager, toddler, and two dogs.  I love coffee, wine, and reading good old fashioned paper books.  When I’m not working, I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, taking my toddler to play dates, and dreaming up our next travel adventure.
