A passion for helping others reach new heights
Sport and physical activity have played a key role throughout Julie’s impressive career. Being active has allowed her to adopt a healthy lifestyle, stay disciplined, manage stress more effectively and cultivate a strong circle of friends outside her professional network.
In the last two years, Medicart, a company that promotes the adoption of a healthy lifestyle and has many fitness-oriented employees, used the Challenge as both a team building exercise and a way to support a great cause.
Julie’s daughter, Ann-Victoria, with whom she participates in the FitSpirit Mother/Daughter Challenge since 2020, also has an active lifestyle. In addition to her dance training, she also practices freestyle skiing. Julie believes that in order to keep girls moving, it’s important to motivate them, provide them with the tools to succeed and serve as a role model for them.
Julie has always felt driven to push her personal limits and to inspire others to do the same. In addition to being a leader, lawyer and president of a company, she’s a committed philanthropist who’s highly involved in the community. As a member of SME advisory boards, Julie has assisted hundreds of young entrepreneurs. She also advocates for women’s professional success as the ambassador and co-founder of the Leadership au féminin program. Additionally, she supports various causes and sits on a number of other boards, including the Conseil du statut de la femme and the Conseil de l’avancement de la Faculté administration at Université Laval.
