About Upstream Wellness

Welcome to my website! My name is Julie and I am a Certified Personal Trainer as well as a Duke Integrative Medicine Certified Health Coach. In addition, I am also a certified Functional Aging Specialist. 

I hold a Bachelors of Science degree in Sociology from Florida Southern College.  I have previously worked for the Federal Government as Deputy District Director for Congresswoman Kathy Castor (Tampa).

When I hit my 50’s I noticed the not so subtle changes to my body, and hired a personal trainer.  This was the beginning of my interest and passion for exercise and wellness.  I could see, firsthand, the positive changes to my body and also how other areas of my life improved.

I’m truly privileged and blessed that I get to work with the most amazing clients. I have respect and honor for my clients allowing me to partner with them and help foster these life-changing transformations that touch their lives in ways they never thought possible.​

We all need support to achieve greater health, build new health habits, and change a lifetime of health behaviors – and that’s where health coaching can play an important role.

“I was trying to get in a consistent meditation practice for years and finally was able to pull the trigger AND stick to a consistent schedule with the help of Julie. I also was able to lose a few pounds that I was looking to lose by honing in on what needed to be cut out of my daily diet. The way Julie coaches made things seem very approachable and non-intimidating, where I was comfortable making initial steps in the right direction.”

“I’m six weeks into my health coaching with Julie and I have been able to reduce my frequency of smoking.  She helped my come up with a plan of action that is meaningful for me.  I now have the confidence to move forward with complete cessation.”
