Biography

Julie is the owner of Merrick Mental Game Coaching where she works with high school and college athletes “from the shoulders up” with the mental aspect of their sport and utilizes mindfulness as one tool to help with focus and get clarity in their performance. She is a credentialed teacher with over 20 years experience and holds a B.S. in Biology from Westmont College, Santa Barbara, CA.

Since 2014, Julie has taught the Mindful Schools curriculum to grades K-12, facilitated classes and workshops for staff development days, student leadership classes, PTAs and created an after-school mindfulness enrichment program. Julie views mindfulness as the foundation through which people can be more present and grounded. By introducing people of all ages to mindfulness, Julie can help us cope better with the demands of our busy lives.

Julie is a big handwritten letter fan and spoke at TEDx Camarillo. She also volunteers for the Camarillo Hospice and was the keynote speaker at a senior wellness event.
