2017 Keynote Speaker Julie Marie Carrier

A Girls’ Success Coach for the #1 Hit Positive Goal Setting TV Show on MTV, “MADE”, Emmy-Nominee and National Speaker and Award-Winning Author of “BeYOUtiful”

Featured on NBC’s Today Show, Julie Marie Carrier is a top national speaker, award-winning author and Emmy-Nominee. Julie also brings her message to millions of homes on national television as a Success Coach for MTV’s #1 hit positive goal-setting TV Show, “MADE.”

Julie’s messages are also featured in the New York Times best seller, The Success Principles, Chicken Soup for the Extraordinary Teen Soul and in her national award-winning book, BeYOUtiful!, considered a best book for young women on success and self-confidence.

Recognized as one of the Top 50 Student Leaders in the Nation and a Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholar to England, Julie graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa in Leadership Studies from The Ohio State University. At the age of just 23, Julie was hired to serve as a Senior Management Consultant in Leadership Development for the Pentagon where she served for four years.

With her increasing successes, Julie became increasingly frustrated with how destructive media messages and unhealthy role models are misleading young women away from achieving their own dreams. As a result, Julie left her prestigious Pentagon career in order to serve as a positive voice for young women on leadership, character and confidence and has been recognized as “America’s #1 Speaker for Teen Girls.”

To date, Julie has reached nearly a million young people at conferences, events, schools and colleges world-wide.
