After 18 years in progressive positions in Human Resources, Julia Bell decided to start her own HR Consulting practice in January 2012. She has extensive knowledge in working with companies of all sizes, from small family owned practices to very large, established organizations. Throughout, Julia has encountered many different approaches to managing the Human Resource functions in business. She has a keen eye to what is effective and where there are often disconnects between the business itself and Human Resources.
Prior to working in the HR field, Julia was a Psychologist working with the seriously mentally ill. She has handled difficult cases and worked in extreme conditions always finding the point of compassion to reach her clients. She also worked with the geriatric population to ensure that they were comfortable and cared for during the end of their lives. These experiences have given Julia a deep understanding of human dynamics which she has brought with her into the business world.
