Children Are Individuals

Children rarely fit nicely into the pre-determined boxes of our educational system. Every child deserves the chance to succeed. My purpose is simple-- help others learn how to equip the total child for success in their educational environment.

You are the expert on your child.

Being prepared not only increases confidence when advocating, but it also reminds the team your input is equal in value with everyone at the table. A prepared Mama Bear is unstoppable!

    "I’ve had the privilege of working along side Julie for two years now and it’s been an absolute pleasure. She is someone who is on top of her game. Her drive, passion and detail oriented ways allow her to not miss a beat. If she doesn’t know an answer, she finds it. Her great sense of humor is delightful and you feel comfortable in her mama bear style that assures you she’s got you. When you work with Julie, get ready to acquire a friend. I’m so privileged to say she is one of my dear friends now and it’s an honor to know her."

  • Michele-

    "Julie made the complicated process of an IEP feel manageable and a lot less stressful. She helped me through the days that I felt overwhelmed and supported me through the entire process. I highly recommend reaching out to her as soon as possible no matter what stage you are at in the process."

  • Grace-

    "I’m so grateful to always have my triplet mommies mafia behind me especially as it led me to Julie who’s an awesome student advocate. Whether you’re looking for someone to simply hold your hand or educate you while working with the school for your special needs child, please contact Julie. I’m beyond grateful to her as she’s worked tirelessly with my family for a year, and I know I will lean into her for many more years."
