Julie Wilkes is the North American Wellness Lead for Accenture where she oversees the wellness, and work/life programs. She has worked within Wellness at Accenture for 7 years (been with the company for 14 years) and has a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology/Workforce Wellness from The Ohio State University and an undergraduate degree in International Business from Marietta College. Julie helped to develop the Accenture Wellness program from inception to implementation and works to continually enhance the offerings. In June 2012, Accenture was honored to be selected for the 3rd time as one of the National Business Group on Health’s Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles in 2012.
Due to her work in Wellness at Accenture, Julie was chosen in 2010 by FITNESS magazine as one of their top 10 ‘Champions of Health and Wellness’ for 2010 – along the likes of Michelle Obama and Serena Williams. She was also selected as one of BusinessFirsts’s 40 Under 40 award winners and was a semifinalist for Best Service for the TechColumbus Innovation Awards in 2012. She recently visited the White House to provide input on Flexible Work options for business.
Julie’s inspiration comes from overcoming a congenital heart defect that originally gave Julie a life expectancy of 12 years old. She feels that healthy living and positive support in her life is what helped to heal her heart and so she hopes to pay forward by helping others find ways to live healthier, happier lives.
