Julie Johnston

Sr. Director of Strategic Partnerships
Julie Johnston

Julie’s sales career started over 20 years ago at large publishing companies including Thomson, Pearson, and Disney where she worked with consumer brands such as Target to create marketing campaigns. In 2003, she moved into EdTech where she helped students recover credits for graduation and develop future ready skills. After spending 13 years in the K-12 curriculum space, she found her true calling in SEL.

Julie's most coveted role is being a mom to her teenage daughter, Brooke. Outside of work, she enjoys yoga, roller skating with her daughter, and hiking with her rescue pups. She has completed a number of certification programs, including yoga teacher training for adults and children, as well as for individuals who have experienced trauma, as well as in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Julie is a regular HeartMath participant who has taught mindfulness and yoga to preschoolers and created an afterschool curriculum for tween girls.   

“My purpose is to help reduce the stigma that surrounds mental illness and to assist in creating a world where all students feel safe, seen, heard, and respected for who they are.”
