Work Hard.
Dream Big. Do More.

I'm Julie — I'm that kid your mom totally wished you were friends with in grade school. But you weren't. Because you were super cool. And I was that band nerd whose sole mission in life was to get perfect grades, never skip a class... and inadvertently make you look bad. 

Fortunately, we're all adults now so we can be friends. ツ

I'm a born and raised Texan — and quite proud of it. I live in the DFW area with my husband, Brett, and our rescue pup, Captain. He's a Shih Tzu and if I'm being honest, he runs our house. We just work to pay for his treat habit and incessant demand for fluffy blankets to lounge around on. 

Best known for: being a very loud, very proud TCU Horned Frog alum; an absurd addiction to college football; an obscenely vast library of 80s and 90s music trivia knowledge crammed in my brain; obsessing over restaurant menu typos; channeling my inner Leslie Knope... and being a card carrying member of Team Buffy.

Real talk: I've spent my entire career hyper-fixated on climbing the corporate ladder, working well over 40 hours most weeks chasing 'the dream'...

Until one day, I finally woke up and realized that 'the dream' isn't all it it's cracked up to be... and I need more. I am meant for more.

No amount of ladder climbing or title chasing is going to be enough for me. 

Burning out for the sake of 'making it' is no way to live, y'all.

Never settle. Do more of what you love.

Never settle.
Do more of what you love.

Somewhere over the years, I lost sight of me. I forgot who I was, what I stood for and what kind of mark I want to leave on this crazy world. More times than I care to admit, I literally told other people, "I used to be fun, I promise!"

I prioritized work over everything else instead of acknowledging the persistent feeling in my gut that I'm supposed to figure out my purpose and use it to help others find their own way out of the corporate grind fog of doom and destruction.

Whew... that's a lot to unpack, I know. And I have a feeling some of it resonates with you. Hopefully, you'll come along for the ride and get something out of it too. But if nothing else, it'll be entertaining. I promise you that!

I BELIEVE IN:

Dreaming big, pursuing things people say "can't be done," strong drinks, queso and random trips to Trader Joe's.

I'm NOT ABOUT:

Excuses, reality TV, the Oxford comma, unloading the dishwasher, running if I'm not being chased and corporate ego fluffing.

YOU CAN FIND ME:

Rewatching Parks & Rec, quoting The Office, flipping through cookbooks and buying stuff I don't need from Amazon.

daily rituals:

Morning coffee, organizing my to-do lists, puppy cuddles and cursing at dirty dishes in the kitchen sink.

My Favorite Things

College football + tailgating.
See: TCU Horned Frogs.

Go Frogs!

TCU Horned Frogs. I'm a loud, proud TCU alum. And it's always a great day to be a Horned Frog, y'all.

Our rescue pup, Captain. He owns the place. We just work to support his cookie habit. And his cushy blanket habit. And keep the roof over his ridiculously adorable head.

My Favorite Things

Reading in the pool. It doesn't even have to be in my backyard. Bonus points if the pool is in Mexico.

Pumpkin spice everything. Yeah, it's basic... and I don't even care. PSL forever.

Music trivia. If you need a game night partner with entirely too much useless knowledge of all things 70s/80s/90s pop and rock, I'm your girl.
