And for those that don't know Julie, here is her bio:
Dr. Julie Granger, PT, DPT, SCS, WHC is a teen & women’s health and life coach, sports physical therapist, and career and business coach to physios and health professionals. She specializes in holistic treatment and coaching of active, busy women, teens and professionals.
Julie is fluent in “speaking teenager” and has a passion for helping girls and women find simple ways to fix or prevent health problems without sacrificing their whole lives to do it. She also loves helping health pros do more with less in their businesses or careers so they can spend more time living and less time working.
Dr. Granger loves sharing her passion & knowledge with others as an accomplished speaker. She is an adjunct clinical professor in the Emory University Doctor of Physical Therapy program, from where she also received her DPT degree & performed research on the holistic sports health of girl and teen athletes. She has lectured both nationally and internationally & is faculty member for the Integrative Women’s Health Institute (IWHI).
In early 2017 Julie published her first book, The Young Female Athlete’s Playbook.
As a lifelong elite swimmer & cancer survivor, Dr. Granger knows firsthand what her clients are stacked up against.
Now in an international coaching practice, she helps show women and teens that health is more than a never ending series of appointments, supplements, nutrition changes and out of the box lifestyle changes. Instead, she helps them embody the universal human truth that health begins and ends with the state of mind that we hold.
Dr. Granger swam collegiately at Duke University where she majored in child & adolescent developmental psychology. In her free time she enjoys swimming, being outdoors, drawing and painting, playing the clarinet, and traveling and adventuring with her husband, Daniel, and Labrador pup, Aspen.
