Julie is an accomplished leadership coach, with extensive management experience and a passion for growing individuals and teams.

As a coach Julie is challenging and persistent, but in a supportive way. She helps her clients to clarify their thinking, find their own solutions and develop strategies they are committed to… then she inspires the determination required to make incremental changes to become the best version of themselves. The measurable result from Julie’s coaching is a shift in attitude and behaviour: real transformational change.

Julie brings extensive experience in resolution of strategic and operational issues, and coordination of projects and initiatives, requiring multiple stakeholder engagement. Julie regularly works in environments demanding high levels of confidentiality and sensitivity, and works comfortably and confidently with staff of all levels. Prior to training as a coach, Julie enjoyed a highly successful career in higher education. 

With more than two decades of experience as a senior leader, mentor and coach, Julie is committed to coaching people to achieve personal and professional growth.

Having worked as part of executive groups and managed teams of varying sizes, she has a first-hand appreciation and deep understanding of the challenges faced by leaders.

As part of her coaching practice Julie holds Associate roles with: BTS Coach (a global coaching leadership organisation) where she also holds the role of Mentor Facilitator; Coach Studio (an Adelaide-based coaching organisation); The Coaching Practice (a Sydney-based coaching organisation); and KPMG, where she coaches Leaders within the Australian Defence Force.

She has extensive experience working with education leaders at all levels (Principals and Deputy/Assistant Principals in primary and secondary schools) and academic/professional staff within the higher education sector – in New South Wales, Queensland, the Australian Capital Territory and South Australia. She has also worked with staff at all levels in the corporate, government and not-for-profit sectors, with some recent clients including:
