Welcome to Julie Naturally.
I’m Julie, a born-again Christian, 20 year veteran homeschooling mom, and trained herbalist and certified aromatherapist.
I am on a mission to transform the lives of busy, overwhelmed moms by equipping them with tools for authentic living and self-reliance and helping them renew their minds, honor their temples, and throw off everything that hinders them from passionately pursuing their purpose with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength.
I’m Here to Help
I know what it’s like to feel sick, tired, and hurting all over. By the age of 23, I had more than 50 total environmental, food, and chemical allergies. I suffered with chronic headaches, brain fog, stuffiness, neck and back pain, mitral valve prolapse, IBS, menstrual pain and PMS, rheumatism, and lethargy. After years of watching my mother suffer with one health issue after another with no real cures offered by Big Pharma, I knew that wasn’t the answer.
A fateful visit to a chiropractor changed my life forever.
It was in her office that I learned about a rotation diet, the power of nutrition, and began my journey to vibrant health.
However, it was a long road. When I initially changed my diet, my body went into a health crisis that nearly cost me my job at the time. I experienced short-term memory loss, spotted vision, heart palpitations and shortness of breath, tingling limbs, and lots of cramping and diarrhea. It took three months to regain health and when I did, I felt fantastic!
What I didn’t know then was that all of that could have been avoided had I known about the complementary power of herbs. It was in the next few years–when I got married and started a family–that I discovered what I was missing. I threw myself into learning all I could about plant medicine so my children could avoid the ill health to which I had succumbed at such a young age. That was when I enrolled in a Masters degree program.
And my children–all of whom have special needs–grew up on whole foods and plant-medicine. Because of my training, they avoided Big Pharma and because we homeschooled, they avoided Big Government, too. My oldest is now 24 and she has no signs of the health issues I had at that age. Thank the Lord Jesus!
And in 2014, when I developed fibromyalgia anyway, it was doubling down on nutrition and incorporating some bodywork that put it in remission. Every year, I feel better and better and am able to participate in more of my favorite outdoor activities. Just this summer, I went whitewater rafting and did a ropes course with my youngest son.

I earned my Master of Herbology degree from The School of Natural Healing, founded by the late Dr. John Christopher. It is the oldest herbal training school in the United States and includes some of the most notable herbalists in the world such as Christopher Hobbs, the late Dr. James Duke, Dr. Ahmet Warfa, and Richard Schulze. I was honored to have received instruction from these teachers.
I earned my Aromatherapy certificate from the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy, founded by Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt. This is also one of the oldest aromatherapy training programs in the United States. Earning this certificate qualified me for NAHA Level 1 recognition. To further my knowledge, I am currently enrolled in a Level 2 training program at Sedona Aromatics, which will award me the Professional Aromatherapist designation and allow me to sit for the registered aromatherapist exam through ARC.
I am also currently dually enrolled in the Master of Science in Health and Human Performance program at the prestigious Pacific College of Health and Sciences and and as a Functional Medicine Certified Coach Candidate at the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy.
