Julie possesses so many qualities which make a great teacher . . . integrity, compassion, humor, honesty and knowledge borne out of personal experience. She wants every student to feel welcomed and nourished, and goes out of her way to make sure they are well cared for. Julie is a committed student, first and foremost, which gives her the wisdom and credibility that can only come through consistent personal exploration. My confidence in her as a teacher and as an advocate for others is unmatched.
