Julia Smith is a Founding Partner of the John Maxwell Team. A lifelong coach, mentor, trainer, teacher, she dedicated most of the past forty years to her passion…figure skating. She holds Master Ratings in four disciplines from the Professional Skaters Association, a worldwide organization of figure skating coaches, served as chairperson and committee member for PSA and also, as a Gold Certified Judge and International Referee for the Ice Skating Institute.  Her skill set for teaching expanded into hockey where she achieved the second highest accreditation for coaches from USA Hockey.

Ten years ago, she walked away from full-time skating duties and entered the corporate world where she serves as Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Forrest Products S.W., Inc., a multi-national packaging company.

She is ground floor with a highly specialized publishing/multi-media/experiential company devoted to benefiting pre-teens and teens. Much of what she is doing is under-wraps, awaiting a full launch later this year, but as a teaser, she revealed the cornerstone for this group:  READ. DREAM. DO. Her multi-generational aspect includes parents and grandparents in another role:  BLOSSOM.  BLOOM.  TREASURE. This new endeavor allows Julia to continue to teach, coach and mentor, while infusing young lives with guidance, leadership of self and a host of other qualities beneficial for this age group and necessary for a successful adulthood.
