We'd love to be your partner in discovering and unleashing a better tomorrow. JLev.Life specializes in developing high performance teams, joy-filled lives and a better world. Through our services - leadership coaching, motivational speaking, retreats, strategy sessions and team development, we energize and unleash human potential. Though most services are provided personally by JLev.Life CEO, Julie Hood Leverenz, a team of Gurus is available to support and respond to specialized expertise needed to meet the needs of clients. 

Julie Hood Leverenz, founder and CEO, is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and enjoyed 31 years as a senior leader of a healthcare system before pouring her heart into JLev.Life. Most of her healthcare career focused on senior level leadership of planning, strategy, engagement, service experience and the alignment of culture with organizational aspirations. Julie completed her undergraduate education at the University of Missouri - Columbia and is a graduate of the John M. Olin School of Business at Washington University where she earned her MBA.

Throughout her professional career, Julie thrives when she is able to connect with business and community leaders to support discovery and optimization of potential. In addition to her core work, this quest has led her to volunteer her time to guide numerous non-profit agencies to prosper in fulfilling their missions.  As a Rotarian, in addition to being active in her club she has traveled to serve in Africa and Guatemala, was named Rotarian of the Year,  is a Paul Harris Fellow, and will serve as District Governor in 2022-23. 

Julie is the author of "There's JOY in the F.O.G" published by Rodes Publishing. Her book will be available on Amazon in early fall 2020. She is a dynamic speaker and inspiring presence. 

When not serving clients or inspiring possibilities, Julie and her husband of nearly 40 years enjoy life on their beautiful grain and cattle farm in rural Missouri. They have adult children and two beautiful grandsons who are truly the lights of their lives.
