Welcome to The Illuminated Life, an easy-to-use, beautifully curated online coaching program and community to help you break through to the next level of your life + shine your light in the world. 

Do you ever feel like your life just isn’t where it’s supposed to be?  You try to convince yourself that you “should” be happy, but you can’t seem to turn off the voice that is whispering that there’s something more.

Good news.  You’re not alone + you’re not crazy. You’re actually just on the verge of a breakthrough!

You’ve been doing your inner work, but for some reason things still haven’t fallen into place yet. You can tell you’re SO close to breaking through, but you just can’t get there + you know you need support.

The Illuminated Life is like the owners manual to life that teaches you how to tap into your own inner wisdom and find the answers that are living inside of you.

You have everything you need inside of you.  You just need someone to show you how to get there.

This 4-week course is for women who are smart, self-aware, and know their stuff – but for some reason, things haven’t clicked together yet.

This program gives you the tools you need to live a life you love, so that you never have to look outside of yourself again.

We cover the most important aspects of a woman’s life – Body, Relationships, Life Purpose and Spirituality.

We don’t skim the surface + we don’t wait for other people to change.  We do OUR work + the answers start to reveal themselves.  We take our power back + life gets really good!

Life is an inner game. When we get the inner stuff right, the outer world falls into place.

I want to follow my heart, and contribute tot he world

The Illuminated Life will give you the answers.

“My biggest breakthrough was that I can TRUST myself! It’s such a beautiful way to live! One day during the program, I woke and realized that I am worthy of love just as I am! The next day, my boyfriend proposed completely unexpectedly! No joke! And it happened because I focused on myself first!”


“I don’t tend to do well with online courses, but this was by far the best one I’ve been a part of (and I’ve done several!). I really liked how simple yet profound each week’s lessons were. I never felt like it was an overwhelming amount of information. I learned how to be happy here and now!”


“This experience was priceless. I could go on forever about how many nuggets of wisdom I’ve learned from The Illuminated Life! There was such a huge change that took place over 4 weeks. The entire experience was life changing! I’m a completely different woman.”


The Illuminated Life is built upon the 4 PILLARS of every woman’s life – Body, Relationship, Life Purpose and Spirituality – all wrapped up in an easy-to-use online program curated to help you shine from the inside out.

The Illuminated Life is about learning who you really are on the inside. It’s about learning how to feel at home in your body, how to cultivate meaningful relationships, how to discover and live your true purpose, and how to feel at calm and confident even when life is swirling around you.

The Illuminated Life is for the woman who is ready to feel so good on the inside that she radiates and shines her light out onto every part of her life.

“The negative self talk is now gone. I started to exercise. I got a job. I am even nicer to my husband. I don’t know what is going on. I don’t feel different. I just AM different.”


“I am so grateful for Julie and this group!  I have been able to see what I desire, where I am meant to be, and what I am meant to do in this life. An epiphany! It’s exciting. It’s scary. It’s exhilarating!”

about julie

julie santiagoI spent years trying to control my life – both when I worked as a trader on Wall Street and when I began my coaching practice. I was in a constant state of fear and anxiety – hoping and waiting for things to get better, but petrified to actually let go of the reigns and release control.

I knew there was something more to my life, but I just didn’t know what it was or how to get there.

I had lost my spark + I just wanted to feel excited, alive, and purposeful in my life and in my relationships.

I had one foot in and one foot out of everything and I was stuck because it all felt so overwhelming. I didn’t know where to start.

I was stuck because I was too afraid to make any big changes. I was holding my breath and hanging on for dear life. The truth is that I didn’t TRUST myself or Life. I knew something had to change, but I just wanted someone to give me the magic formula and tell me what I was supposed to do next!  I kept looking outside of myself, hoping the inside would magically fall into place.

I see this happening with so many women –  we yearn for something more, tip-toeing in and out of breaking free, and hoping that one day something will finally be different. And since most of us were never taught how to truly listen to our wise inner selves, we keep on waiting and hoping that things will change but they never do.

I finally realized that there was no magic pill and no one was coming to save me.  If I wanted my life to be different, I had to get to work doing something about it!  So, I got to work on my inner game and that’s what The Illuminated Life is all about.

Having an Illuminated Life isn’t about looking good on the outside. It’s about feeling incredible on the inside.

As a woman, you have all the answers inside of you – you just have to know how to access them – and that’s where I come in.

I’ve created The Illuminated Life to teach you how to find your own answers.

I want to show you how to take everything that has come before this moment and use it AS FUEL to propel yourself forward into a life that you never imagined possible for you.

The Illuminated Life teaches you how to shift your inner world and watch your outer world fall into place.

I know it’s possible because I’ve done it!  If you want your Life to be different, you have to do something about it and I would be honored to show you how.

“We’re only 2 weeks in and I’ve already learned so much! I’ve listened to the relationship pillar three times and I still glean treasure from it. I’ve also learned how to listen to my body and my intuition! Julie is so caring as she helps you shed the weight of limiting beliefs.  She’s is the real deal.”

“I want my mom, my sisters, and my roommates all to take this course!  The relationship pillar of this course changed my life. I was able to heal and move past some really old and deep stuff. Since the program I have been able to tap into the beauty & lessons Life is constantly showing me. I’ve slowed down, stopped judging my body and I truly trust that The Universe has a plan for me!”


Listen to Erin’s testimonial about how The Illuminated Life changed her life:

a note from julie

I always tell the women I work with that I am a constant teacher and student of life. I’m far from perfect. I’m a real woman – like you – always learning and growing. I don’t know it all, but I do know what has worked for me and for hundreds of other women. I feel truly blessed to have created this course as a collection from my most powerful teachings to help you SHINE no matter what is happening in the world around you.

I would be deeply honored to walk this path with you and hold the lantern as you, too, learn to shine your beautiful light.
