Julie Holunga is an executive leadership coach who trains and develops corporate women, primarily in the legal, accounting, technology, and professional services fields, who are striving to bring direction, focus, leadership and impact to their careers. Many professionals in these groups did not learn or perfect the necessary skills through education or professional development to grow their careers and leadership capacity. Many of them also lack the confidence to activate these skillsets.
Through her proven frameworks, Julie shows her clients how to tangibly and concretely reach the next level of success, which they define themselves, with Julie’s guidance. Success for Julie’s clients comes in the form of more productive work relationships, effective communication strategies, advancement, leadership qualities, and heightened confidence when navigating their career paths.
Julie started her career working at Harvard University in the Capital Gifts group. Julie previously served as project manager for Alumni Career Services at Harvard Business School. She has built relationships with leaders at Wall Street firms leading the efforts to advance women into positions of leadership. Julie received her Bachelor’s degree in French Literature and Economics at Union College and her MBA from Boston College. She is a certified executive coach and Professional Certified Coach (PCC) under the International Coach Federation. She is also certified as an associate through Emergenetics. She spent seven of her formative years living and attending school in France, India, and Hong Kong.
Julie, her husband, and two kids moved from Boston to Calgary, Canada and are now settled in Denver, Colorado. Her family often points out that Julie is the only one in the family not on a hockey team. They take annual two-week road trips as a family, which started with the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Although she was born in New York, she spent 13 years living in Boston where her love of the Red Sox began. When she is not in the stands of a hockey rink or on the sidelines of lacrosse fields, she can be found hiking with her puppy.
