what they say

We admit it. We love raving about our clients. So when we get a rave review in return, we like to share it.


Here are some of our recent rave reviews…

Harvest Plus“Working with Julie has been a fantastic experience. She is a superb leadership and executive coach and mentor, brimming with insight, creativity and encouragement. I have enjoyed every minute of working with her as a career coach and I recommend her very highly. I am grateful for her advice and also for her ability to harness my own ability to recognize my own potential.”
- Peg Willingham, Head of Advocacy and Policy, HarvestPlus

“I’ve seen Julie work in a variety of settings: speaker, coach, facilitator, team builder. Her integrity and authenticity infuse everything that she does. She is creative, strategic and resourceful at getting to the core of an issue and helping me take action within my values to achieve results. She listens well and then analyzes; she couples deep commitment and powerful questions to support you in moving beyond the box to innovative solutions.”
- Rob Krupicka, Owner / Managing Member at Orange Kru LLC / Sugar Shack Donuts/ Former State Delegate

“As an aspiring entrepreneur, I connected with iLead Strategies to help me as I developed my business. In our work together, I’ve been constantly challenged to explore, probe, and clarify the path and choices I’m creating through my company. This has also allowed me to grow personally in unexpected and immeasurable ways; and as a result, I have become more confident and focused in pursuing my dreams.”
- Danielle White Prendergast, PhD & Founder of Policy by Design, LLC

virginia house of delegates“I have had to balance being a legislator, candidate for office, and business manager. Working with Julie has proven invaluable. I love that I always walk away from my time with her with a clear plan of action, and an understanding of how to execute the plan. She has been an effective advisor as I have found the balance which so many struggle to achieve.”
-Delegate Charniele Herring, Virginia House of Delegates

“I have spent the bulk of my career helping other professionals shape their career through thoughtful strategic planning. Until I started working with iLead Strategies, I’d done very little to develop my own vision. With Julie and her team’s expert guidance, I’ve been able to organize my thoughts and develop a tangible action plan.”
- Dennis Parker, CEO, Carieton and Associates, A Human Services Policy Company
COO, HOPE a Full Scale Family and Children Services Organization

cropped-acaaa_logo-177“We were thrilled when Julie came to Arkansas to provide training for the CAA staff. Her presentations were both challenging and inspiring. Following a heavily policy-oriented and toolkit-building first day, Julie concluded our statewide Results-Oriented Management and Accountability (ROMA) training session with a day full of motivational and thought-provoking activities, allowing participants to leave reinvigorated and with a sense of the value of the work they do.”
- Terry A. Bearden, ROMA Coordinator, Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association

city of alexandria“Julie and the iLead Strategies team has been invaluable to the Alexandria Commission for Women over the last several years through her facilitation of our annual retreat. Everyone in the company is the consummate professional – organized, prepared, focused, kept everyone on task (no small feat), and provided an actionable summary and follow-up plan. Julie and her team were instrumental in ensuring the Commission had a successful year ahead.”
- Lisa Baker, Director, Office on Women, City of Alexandria
