Having worked for more than 25 years in the marketing communications profession across industries, types of organisations and economic situations, Julie is able to understand and empathise with her clients on the challenges they face. Having worked in and managed teams, Julie knows the benefits of understanding team roles, leveraging on the strengths of team members and the importance of helping teams understand and appreciate each other.
She is warm, approachable, authentic and professional and comes to a coaching session with a curious and non-judgmental mind.

Julie was raised in multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-religious and cosmopolitan Singapore watching Sesame Street, The Electric Company, Happy Days and the likes. She has travelled since a young age to North America, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Egypt, Rwanda, Middle East and many Asian countries.
Today, she's not too much of a TV and movie buff but still enjoys an animated movie or two in her free time. She has been actively engaged in community outreaches in Singapore and abroad over many years which she thoroughly enjoys and finds fulfilment in.
She also enjoys reading, having tea with friends and spending time with her mini-daschund, Mr Dober.
