Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can’t change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

Ulli (pronounced like Julie without the J) looks back to a long-time career in the wellness business management, environmental nonprofit and corporate hospitality world.

She designed and developed wellness workshop & retreat programs for resorts and wellness centers worldwide, organized hundreds of workshops and seminars annually during her time as product manager with leading vocational training institutes and managed day-to-day operations of restaurants, hotels, and resort spas in Austria, Switzerland, and the US.

Ulli launched The Wellness Agency in 2008 to help health & wellness professionals and hospitality businesses around the world bring engaging, integrative wellness programs, workshops and retreats to life that inspire and empower people to proactively take care of their health & wellbeing.

During her career in the wellness industry she witnessed many people whose lives were completely transformed by skillful healing practitioners, wellness retreat leaders, movement therapists and spiritual or personal coaches.

She believes that these practitioners are the true heroes in today’s world that needs health & healing like never before. Yet for many of them it’s challenging to cut through the white noise of wellness chatter and get recognized for their high-quality, integrative wellness programs that provide long-term benefits for people’s health & wellbeing.

Ulli thrives on helping these heroes – wellness entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses – successfully grow their businesses, strengthen the impact of their work and create the positive change we all need.
