Her spirit helps others to feel seen and empowered to change their own lives by learning to love and lead themselves and others well.

For eight years Justine has been certified in the work of Dr. Brené Brown as a Certified Daring Way™, Dare to Lead™ & BOLD™ Facilitator.

Justine enjoyed sharing her message of courageous resilience during her Rising Ever Upward tour where she offered workshops and intensives in eight cities across the country. She was also honored to do two TEDx Talks, The Permission of the And and The Donut Effect. She travels nationally and presents virtually to global audiences delivering keynotes, workshops, and trainings on topics such as leadership, courage, resilience, mental health, preventing and coping with burnout, and courageous and curious conversation, especially in creating cultures of belonging and diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Justine lives in St. Louis with her husband Chad, their three dogs, and for four months of the year, hundreds of monarch butterflies. She enjoys her childfull life by spending time with friends, traveling, practicing creative self-care, laughing (many times at herself), and marveling at nature, especially in building butterfly gardens, which has made her an accidental butterfly farmer.
