Reinvention & Compassion Fatigue Specialist
Born and raised in London, England, Juliette has been an ATP airplane pilot and Master Flight Instructor; a Playboy Bunny; a soap opera writer for ABC Television and a theater writer/performer. She has won two Writers Guild Awards and has been nominated for a Daytime Emmy. Juliette most recently added TEDxFargo speaker to her extensive resume.
Her current mission is twofold; to help people who are struggling with the debilitating and potentially lethal symptoms of Compassion Fatigue; the emotional and physical burden created by caring for others in distress or neglecting your own life-stress.
Some of the tell-tale signs are:
- You don’t know who you are anymore.
- You experience an unusually strong reaction to a minor event which feels traumatic to you.
- You’re losing compassion for some people while becoming over-involved with others.
- You’ve stopped sleeping and if you do sleep – you wake up with this awful feeling of dread.
- You realized you haven’t laughed in weeks.
Compassion Fatigue is a hugely pervasive syndrome and it not only affects professional caregivers but also most of us, one way or another. Through unique tools and strategies, she guides people to recover their “why?” and instead of emotional and physical exhaustion, they feel more hopeful and energized with a new plan for life.
Of course, in order to cope with Compassion Fatigue you have to sometimes change direction. That’s where Juliette also leads people to discover their Next Act through their own personal Reinvention. “How to be who you really are.” Look at your “What is?” and find your “What can be?”
Through her wide and varied knowledge of conquering life’s obstacles, Juliette shows people how to overcome adversity and create the life of their dreams. In her own words, “I believe adversity is coming at us every day, one way or another. It causes us to lose steam and we lose our reason for doing what we do. Yes, all of us have to deal with difficulties at work or at home – some of us have to deal with tragedy – but I would suggest the real hardship is when we lose our “WHY”. When we lose the passion that drives us. When we drive home and realize we forget the journey. We don’t really overcome adversity – we deal with it….until it pops up again – and then we deal with it again. “
Juliette’s passion is to give hope and inspiration for a new future to those who think they have no voice – those who feel forgotten and those who have lost themselves in who they’ve been for other people.
Juliette lives in beautiful Pagosa Springs, CO with her husband Jason, their 3 horses, and 5 dogs, 4 goats, and a feral barn cat.
It was truly a pleasure to have Juliette come speak at our Village Read Program. The idea is to get everyone in the community and come together for activities around themes from the book. Juliette’s discussion of re-invention was the perfect topic for our book “White Plains”. Not only had Juliette read the book, she adapted her talk to relate directly back to our book. Our audience left motivated, knowing it is never to late to make a positive change in your life. Chris Stevens, Greenwood Village Cultural Arts Manager
