Julie shares her wit and wisdom gained from her life experiences including her background as a mentor with OMNI Youth Services in Buffalo Grove, IL and as a grief support volunteer at The Chicago Children’s Memorial Hospital’s Heartlight program, a bereavement support center for children and their families. Julie has also gained tremendous insight from growing up in a large family and from her life in the corporate world as a marketing professional.
Julie’s enthusiasm and passionate spirit, combined with her comedic insight, help to make her a warm and engaging speaker. In every performance and situation, Julie shares her humor and personal insights from her “woopsies” and “way-to-go’s.” Her personal motto, “find the funny,” helps her to find humor in everyday moments and in life’s seemingly most difficult situations.
