Julie Markee  – My Story

From a young girl, I had dreams of owning my own business. That dream was realized at age 11 when I began teaching private swimming lessons.  This is where I learned the value of helping others overcome their fears.  As a chemical engineer, my entire career has been focused finding the best resolution to a problem.  Over the years, I have honed my these skills into a power perception that allows me to  identify the true root cause of what is holding an organization back. Utilizing my strong interpersonal skills allows me to wade into difficult conversations while my open and honest approach develops trust and increases confidence that following the recommended solution results in accelerated growth and increased profitability.     

“I can honestly say that working with Julie was one of the best decisions that I ever made in my business.
