Julie A Hartig
All of my life I’ve wanted to make a positive impact on the world and add value. I’ve embraced this goal in everything I do – especially through volunteering, teaching, and coaching.
If everyone has a voice, or ‘internal soundtrack’ in their head, mine can be summed up in three words –
How? What? Why?
Having a question to answer, a problem to ponder, or an obstacle to overcome is as essential to me as breathing. In my youth it meant trying to ‘out-solve’ Nancy Drew or Sherlock Holmes; devising strategies in chess or other games to vanquish opponents; or exploring the ‘wild’ territories around our neighborhood in pursuit of discovery and adventure.
As might be imagined, it also makes me a ‘geek’ at heart.
I’ve been fortunate to live, work, and travel globally. My gypsy lifestyle has allowed me to learn from and collaborate with a variety of talented and fascinating people. It’s also given me a chance to understand the world from different perspectives and develop a unique approach and viewpoint.
This website is the place to share what I’ve seen, what I’ve done… and the lessons I’ve learned. It’s also a home to support special volunteer projects I work on for community and non-profit groups.
P.S. – The photos on this site are primarily from my life and travels around the world. I hope you enjoy them and appreciate something different from the usual stock photos that seem to abound. Since these are personal photos, I ask that you not use them without my consent – Thanks!
