julie himmler

Daughter of a US Air Force family stationed overseas, Julie was born in Ely, England about an hour outside of London. Her family moved to the United States when she was 6 years old.

Wanting to pursue a career in the securities business, in 2001 she was offered a position at Morgan Stanley. She turned this offer down because she wanted to take a different financial services path and have time with her young son. That year she started with Integrated Asset Management in the Operations Department. Shortly afterwards, she was lured away by a large health club chain as the Operations Manager.  In 2006, she teamed back up with Integrated Asset Management to serve as the Chief Operations Officer. 

During this time she helped co-author the book "Live Rich Stay Wealthy" and helped create a marketing plan that sold twenty-five thousand books in the first 90 days.

Julie is a wife and mother of two sons and an eight year old daughter. In addition to spending as much time as possible with her family, she enjoys going to the gym and writing.
