About Me

Teacher. A person with experience who guides a novice through learning a skill or strategy.

Julia Smith has been teaching and educating adults for over 10+years. Her specializations are communication and visual design. Throughout her teaching career, she worked in such prestigious schools as the Scheller College of Business at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign College of Business. Because of Dr. Smith’s expert background, a training session with Dr. Smith is not about rote memorization, boring lectures or clicking through tutorials; instead, every course is active, immersive, and memorable.
