Julie is a modern and ethical leader as well as a budding eComm entrepreneur who blows me away with her unlimited drive to improve the customer’s experience. She leads by example, infusing her passion into the team and makes you want to be a better person. I love her honesty and transparency, and how she credits and rewards the team with each milestone. Our online sales have more than doubled year on year, because Julie empowers our team to run it as if it were our own. Julie is one to watch and if you ever get the chance, meet her and discuss your business. You will be better off for it.
