Hello. My name is Julia, and I come from Romania, where I’ve obtained a Bachelor’s in Economics at Bucharest University of Economic Studies and one in Psychology at Ecological University of Bucharest.
A traveler at heart, I lived 2 years in Spain, where I had the chance to understand and embrace different cultures, and learn Spanish, while getting a Master’s in Social Communication at Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona.
My entire academic and professional life has been centered on improving people’s lives: from building houses for people in need with volunteers from all over the world at Habitat for Humanity Romania to creating a comfortable and secure environment for harmonious development of children in hospitals as a volunteer at a Romanian Pediatric Oncology Care Association.
Upon graduating the qualification program for Babysitter, I became a nanny for a family with two amazing and joyful kids. My practical experience was backed by formal studies in Child Psychology, Educational Psychology, Psychology of Children with Special Needs and acquired skills in: stimulation of personal and social development of the child, cultural expression, creating day to day context of emotional stability, communication with the child and the child’s family.
When my husband’s career took a turn towards United states in 2018, we moved to Austin. With our life packed in 5 suitcases and an open heart, we started our new lives here, in beautiful and warm Austin. Further down the line, I transformed my passion into my dream business. At Mind, Heart & Beyond Coaching, I help people rediscover their joy for life by connecting with their gifted inner child.
For me, children are the great teachers of life. They show me every day how to be natural, authentic, see the world with an open heart and live in the present moment. It is a joy and privilege to be a part of Lupine Lane Team and share my passion for math and languages with them.
