Julie Anne Muller (aka Jewels) is the Chief Chick of a Women’s Mastermind Support Network, Chicks Connect. Jewels Muller was born in Milwaukie, Oregon and graduated from Milwaukie High School in 1987. She graduated from University of Oregon in 1991 with a B.A. In Education. She went to work in the public school system for 9 years teaching Elementary, Middle and High School. She earned her Master’s Degree in Educational Policies Foundation and Administration from Portland State University and spent the next three years in Administration.
Jewels was the Leadership and Activities Director for three years at Clackamas High School. Muller, along with her leadership class and the key club, created a community service program called Winter Rage that serves people and families in need during the holiday season. Winter Rage is a service program that is still going strong 14 years later.
Service and giving back is a big part of Muller’s life. With her direction and guidance, the leadership class was awarded with the PGE Foundation Grant which allowed the students to distribute the grant funds to non-profit organizations of their choice. This foundation grant became a big part of the overall curriculum in teaching students to be of service and the importance of giving back to their community.
During her first year as a Vice Principal, Jewels became pregnant with twin boys. She spent the first two years of their life continuing to juggle work with being a wife and mother of newborn twins. She and her husband decided to move to Bend, Oregon, and make the transition from Education to Entrepreneurship.
Jewels started an organizing firm in 2004 where she worked with clients one-on-one and trained and coached others to simplify their lives through her recommended productivity tools, processes and products. She received her coaching credentials with the Life Blue Print coaching program created by Laura Berman Fortgang in 2006 and found her love for coaching. Her simple organizational and productivity processes and systems have assisted numerous clients to become even more efficient so that they can spend more time doing the things they love.
Chicks Connect is dedicated to connecting women, guiding them into action, holding them accountable for personal and professional growth and development all built on a foundation of love, fun, friendship and support. Women meet in local Chicks Connect Chapters in a mastermind format and collaborate and growth together.
