About Julie Harris

fave-Julie-5262I believe that our world needs the perspective offered by those who see the big picture.


As a big-picture thinker myself, I understand that sometimes it feels liberating to be able to see things holistically, strategically…and sometimes it feels as if you’re the only one who can see how the parts fit together to form a whole.

Whether your focus is on delivering effective healthcare, improving the way people work, or optimizing the structures in which we live, there is a place in the world for your ideas.

There’s also a way for you to step into your whole life, whether it includes a focus on your health, family, friends, or other important pursuits.  Defining what success means to you is a critical part of our work together.


What makes me feel whole is combining my analytical background with my movement, creative, and spiritual training to create innovative and actionable ways for you to access and develop your gifts.

When I work with you, I bring everything I have:  my analytical ability, my creativity; my compassion, my straight-talk; my love of concepts, my experience with practices; my business experiences, my spiritual experiences.  If I think it’s relevant, and that it could be useful for you, I’ll bring it.

We’ll include your body, because you have one, and it runs the show a lot more than you realize.  We’ll include your heart, because that’s where your true source of identity and value lives.  And of course your mind – you didn’t think that a fellow big-picture thinker was going to leave out your mind, did you?

Although I’m rarely out of ideas or approaches, I don’t believe that more is better.  Simple is usually better.  I just have a really broad and deep well from which to draw the simple things that will make a difference for you.

Here are my formal credentials:

  • BA, English, University of Pennsylvania
  • MBA, Marketing, Stern School of Business, New York University
  • Integral Coach, New Ventures West
  • Riso-Hudson Enneagram Teacher, The Enneagram Institute
  • Registered Yoga Teacher, Yoga Alliance

If you’re looking for someone who can help you to build a lasting platform for your personal and professional evolution,
then you’re in the right place.
