Meet Julie

Julie has been teaching and designing curricula for over a decade and has an advanced EdM in Curriculum and Teaching from Columbia University.


Growing up with undiagnosed ADHD, Julie often found herself academically paralyzed. Her expectation that she should be able to learn like her peers crippled her, because she couldn't. Once she received her diagnosis, she allowed herself to explore new ways of learning and she thrived, even in an Ivy League setting.


Giving herself permission to be curious about everything, even when it was difficult, changed her life. Curiosity gave her access to success, self knowledge, and innovation that wouldn't have otherwise been possible. This is at the heart of her teaching and it is what brought her to the Critical Reflection work she does today.


Curiosity leads to empowerment and liberation for educators just as much as it does for students. Let's start with deciding to get curious.

"Julie is a natural educator and has the ability to zoom in and out with ease when it comes to curriculum and instruction to see all of the details that are needed, as well as the bigger picture"

- Taryn Dickey

"Her precision in truly getting to the bottom of a problem and uncovering the truth about any given topic was flat out empowering and inspiring."
