Julie's Herstory

It's Never Too Late

I have been athletic my entire life, but it wasn’t until my 40s when I started trail running and made competitive sport a priority in my life. And it wasn’t until I took up mountain biking that I truly felt like an athlete, and it ended up changing my life in ways I couldn’t have imagined. 


As a Cat 1 athlete I won two California State Championships, crossed the finish line first in many hard-fought mountain bike races, earned second place at the U.S. Mountain Bike Nationals, and raced at the international level, placing 8th in the world (Masters Cyclocross). The biggest rewards weren’t from the medals and winning jerseys, but the relationships I created with my teammates and competitors. I continue to cultivate relationships long after my racing career has ended.

My desire to perform as an athlete inevitably lead me to pursue a career in helping people improve their own performance and live an unencumbered life.
