-Meet our crew-
Hi, I'm Julienne!
Founder & CEO
I’m so excited to work with you!
Before we get started, I’d love to tell you a little about myself and help you get to know me.
I grew up playing field hockey and lacrosse and went on to play field hockey at Roanoke College. My journey in athletics was where my passion for athletic training began. After experiencing injuries in High School and college and health issues of my own, I learned the importance of an individualized approach to treatment as well as a more holistic approach to health, wellness & performance.
As for my drive to influence female athletes, that is deeply rooted in an intuitive understanding that women have superpowers of their own, and it’s time to take care of our female athletes in a way that showcases those powers!
Throughout my six years as a practicing athletic trainer, and my recent endeavor as a Personal Trainer, I have gone against the grain and strived to dig deeper to address root causes as well as develop real and personalized solutions for all of my athletes. It is through these experiences that I have realized my heart for working with female athletes and am so excited to continue with you!
What's up? I'm Ellis!
I'm currently a senior at VCU and am studying Psychology and Social Welfare. I went to Trinity Episcopal School and played soccer for the Richmond Strikers where I met Julienne. She was the athletic trainer there and while being treated for an injury, I got to know her really well and hear about her dream of starting a holistic approach to female athletic sports performance. When she asked me to come work for EMPOWER Athlete, it was an easy yes, especially since we share a lot of viewpoints on health and wellness. I enjoy working with kids and have a great appreciation for the medical field, knowing that I could combine the two, and be part of the launch of new business as well as a part of their growth that made the decision easy.
We are so excited to have you join us and I can't wait to see you around!
