I know first-hand how it feels to be tied to my desk with no life. I personally sold my soul to the corporation during my 25 years of building a successful career. My life had one activity – work. I did run home for a few hours of shut-eye daily and then quickly went right back to work. I had very little time for a life and regularly postponed vacations.
It took failing health, poor relationships and waning productivity and creativity and the loss of my job to get me to wake-up and have the courage to admit I had created a soul-sucking life – one that did not include me. I put my job and family first and myself on the back burner. I had become resentful toward the corporation and a very unhappy person. It is from my own journey from ‘soul-sucking life’ to a ‘life of magnificence’, that I launched my own company and made it my mission to help others in the same situation.
I have mentoring programs designed to help you ‘Reclaim Your Life’! Yes, you can have a life and a career. You do not need to choose one or the other. Through our sessions together you move from ‘soul-sucking life’ to a ‘life you can’t wait to jump out of bed and live’. Life is meant to be fun, joyful, and filled with a multitude of activities that rejuvenate and fulfill you.
You will learn how to work less hours, produce more in less time and have a higher level of creativity. When you rejuvenate yourself by adding fun and living to your day, you become a better employee, mom, friend and spouse. Your life will go from surviving to thriving. Those feelings of living a rote life with no significant purpose or passion will disappear. Your relationships will improve. You will become happier and in the process begin to like your life again.
I began my working life as a physician in a county hospital setting serving patients from minority and disadvantaged populations. It was a career that was very fulfilling and meaningful for me. At the same time, my husband and I had four children in a short span of time. As the kids approached their teen years, I elected to stay home so as to be present for all the experiences that that time of life brings. It was a great decision and I enjoyed those years immensely. And I was successful in that role.Because of my time at home during those pivotal years, as the kids became adults they were able to manage quite well without their mother in their new lives. However, after the children all went off to college, I began to feel lost. I had spent so many years being the caregiver and organizer for our large family and I didn’t know what to do to find another purpose. I realized that I had an opportunity to change paths and do something different but felt quite stuck when it came to finding that new path. That’s where Julee came into the picture. I had known Julee as a fellow parent and knew that she had started a coaching business. I trusted her because I knew she was dedicated and honest in all her endeavors and also that she had a kind and loving heart. I knew that I really wanted to move forward in my life and felt that Julee and I would be a good team for this new adventure. It was a wonderful decision. In the time that we have been working together, I have learned so much about myself and how to confidently move forward in my life. One of the best experiences was when Julee took me to a friend of hers who helps women dress more confidently. I had a wonderful time learning about clothes and came away feeling comfortable in my own skin. I am still working toward that new purposeful life but know that I will get there. Working with Julee has given me the confidence to try new things and to live in my world as a strong, confident woman.
I am passionate about empowering you to create a life that feeds your soul, includes you and the things and people that are important to you right alongside your career! I encourage a confidential and supportive partnership with you that embraces the model for collaboration, communication and expectation.

In order for a coaching partnership to be mutually beneficial there must be a connection with each other. I recommend you schedule a complimentary Life Strategy Session with me to determine if my mentoring programs are a fit for you.
I often work with people who feel sure that they want to do more, be more, have greater success and more meaning in their life, but they find themselves wrestling with guilt, conflict, doubt, unworthiness or are unclear how to get there. I guide you through skepticism, resistance, and roadblocks to introduce you to your own inner wisdom and guidance. Life is meant to be fun and include YOU!
When I first started working with you I was lost, could not control my emotions, and was unhappy. You have given me the tools to rephrase my thoughts into thoughts that empower me, taught me how to not let things and people get me down, and reduced my overall stress. When I reflect on who I was a year ago, I can’t even imagine being in that headspace again. You have forever changed my life!

The Four Pillars of Reclaim Your Life Mentoring Programs:
DISCOVER and ACKNOWLEDGE how you got to this place of soul-sucking life, misery and discontent. Nobody sits on their deathbed and says, “I wish I worked more hours.” We were all given childhood messages that led us here. These messages created roadblocks that keep you from living a life of magnificence. To move forward, it is important to understand those messages and turn them around to messages that propel you going forward. If you skip this step you will eventually fall back into your old patterns. A soul-sucking life can lead to illness, divorce, loss of career plus a myriad of other side effects.
DESIGN and CHOOSE how you prefer your magnificent life to be – what does it look like day to day, week to week? You can have whatever you want! You already know what you don’t want so now is your chance to dream and visualize your perfect life. The world is your oyster and there are no limits to what you can have. You get to be the creator, owner and leader of your life! Once the design is complete, the next step is to choose it going forward and the tools and techniques to keep moving.
LEARN and ADOPT the tools to use in your new magnificent and fun life going forward. You currently have tools you utilize to keep working longer hours. Now you want tools to keep you in a life you love and on track. It is easy to fall back into old patterns. Knowing which tools to pull out of your tool bag when that happens is key to lasting change. Tools keep that soul-sucking feeling a distant memory.
PLAN and TAKE ACTION to move from soul-sucking life to a life you can’t wait to jump out of bed and live. You did enter the soul-sucking zone overnight. Baby steps are all that is required to move into a life you love, lead and own. A little bit each day puts that soul-sucking feeling out of sight and in the past. Once you have a plan created from your design, you only need take action to see the lasting changes you are ready to implement. You do this on projects at work without even thinking about it. It is second nature to do this at work. Now it is time to implement that automatic response in your personal life. With a mentor, you are held accountable to your plan.

I attended a wonderful weekend in McCall with 10 phenomenal woman. All the women were in different stages of their life with different struggles…..yet all of the steps outlined could be applied to each person. My biggest take away from the event was actually writing down goals and putting a time on when each goal would be accomplished. I would recommend Julee to everyone……… even for those who do not think they need this type of guidance. We all get into a rut and Julee will definitely get you on a new path.
