Julie is the Head of Executive Coaching for The Toft Group, a ZRG Company and has a passion for coaching and recruiting candidates into top roles. Her expertise in talent acquisition and global executive placement has resulted in countless job opportunities for senior level candidates seeking advancement or making a transition in their careers.

Prior to joining The Toft Group, Julie enjoyed a 20-year professional career leading and partnering with US companies internal worldwide human resource efforts, including Life Technologies, Thermo Fisher and NuVasive. She understands what companies are seeking when interviewing for top talent and utilizes this knowledge when guiding clients through the job search process.

Furthermore, Julie is the Founder and President of JA Talent Partners, a company focused on advancing women in the workplace. She is the author of two workbooks, Reviving Careers and Launching Careers, which are step-by-step guides on how to create a successful job search plan.

Julie finds herself in a position to offer solid career transition guidance and enjoys sharing this knowledge through various media and speaking channels.

"What was truly eye-opening about the coaching experience was realizing how many skills I actually acquired during my medical career, and more importantly, how transferable they are to other careers.
The formal personality assessment tools and self-assessment exercises helped me to define my strengths as well as areas with opportunities for growth/improvement. I learned to articulate the value I bring to prospective organizations, confidently describing my personal and professional skills without sounding arrogant."

“I wanted to let you know that I’ve accepted a CFO position at [a pharma startup]. And in fact I ended up receiving 3 offers, but followed my heart (after much diligence) and chose [the startup]. I feel that the time you spent with me was integral to the success of this process. Thank you!”
Chief Financial Officer
“Julie was my coach last year and was instrumental in my securing a job. She gets my highest recommendation, as I found her program to be very helpful for me, even after going through 9 months of networking and working with Lee Hecht Harrison myself.”
Chief Medical Officer
"I just wanted to thank you very much for being my coach for the past 3 months. It has been a tremendous experience and I have learned a great deal from you and also about myself and what I seek in my next position. You are really good at what you do!
Thanks for helping me with the tools I needed to navigate all of this. I have actually really enjoyed the interview process and when I'm asked the question that you have helped prep me for -I smile silently and can't thank you enough!
Right now, as you predicted, many interviews and I am also negotiating an offer."
Chief Scientific Officer

“Hiring Julie Visser as my career coach was the best decision I made during my yearlong job search. I recommend her to fellow job seekers without reservation, and I’m pleased to know others I respect have chosen to work with her, too. My favorite aspects of Julie’s work include her professionalism, her process for determining my skills and passions, and her ability to listen, understand and provide good advice. Julie’s process reminded me of my core strengths, and focused me on what I want, which translated into a renewed energy felt by fellow job seekers, recruiters and hiring managers. Within a few months of working with Julie I was speaking with a CEO per day, and had multiple offers to choose from. I give Julie Visser my highest recommendation.”
