“The first words that come to mind when I think of Julie are curious, engaged, open and brilliant listener. She has an uncanny ability to ask just the right question to get you thinking in a wholly unique and thoughtful way and our conversations always lead to hidden gems I didn’t even know were there.”
Jamie Greenwood, Life Coach and Emotional Resilience Strategist
Julie Neale led Adult Reflection circles at the school I was leading for years. The beautiful way in which she held space for our teachers to practice open and direct communication, curiosity and care for each other was transformative for my staff. Julie brings a brilliant mixture of belief in people, and the ability to delve into uncomfortable yet deep waters to her work with teams. She is not afraid to ask hard questions and be vulnerable with herself. The way she models the practices of adult reflection gives others the courage and wisdom to do the same. I have been so grateful for her steady, thoughtful and always prepared hands!
“My work with Julie has been life-changing.
Before we started working together, I was on a quest to resolve what felt like a total bifurcation of my mom voice from my professional life and pathway- which was a bit bananas given that I was working in family health.
I loved Julie’s framework – the E.P.I.C. life. I loved her politics – embracing social justice. And I loved how clearly skilled and inclusive Julie was and is. I also deeply appreciated her integration of technology – her services/programs are completely accessible to a busy working single mama.
After our time together, I started a non-profit based on my experiences as a medical mom. I leveraged that voice and perspective to:
- win first place in NIH Rare Disease PR Campaign
- get an appointment as the parent voice on a State of California Children’s Health Advisory Panel for Medicaid policy and spending
- and take a role on the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Family Advisory Council.
I am incredibly grateful for getting to work with Julie. I love the parts of myself that make me a good mom (glitter, gratitude, and whimsy) and it’s truly been a joy to bring those parts of myself front and center into my work and advocacy.”

We started working with Julie as we were re-branding Democracy Clothing, preparing to launch a direct to consumer e-commerce website, and ramping up our social media channels. We wanted to take our social media messaging in a direction that was not common in the fashion brand space by connecting to “influencers of substance” – mothers primarily who were making a positive contribution to society. Julie curated an amazing group of women leaders who we were able to partner with because of her wide reach and expertise in this area.
Julie is incredibly thoughtful and an amazing listener. She asks insightful and meaningful questions and digs deep. In her need to understand, she has the ability to switch on lights and trigger ideas that would not have existed without her input.
I would tell anyone who asked to absolutely work with Julie. She is a true coach, with the ability to help her clients achieve their goals. Whether her client is a $100 million company, a woman wanting to reinvent herself, or a mom who needs support with life and kids, she has the tools to help you fine-tune your own thinking and positively approach any challenge. She is supportive and understanding, sees the potential in every idea, and helps with the necessary clarity to map out a go-forward plan.
