Welcome to EMPOWER Possible, LLC!

Hello there!

I’m Julie Zaruba Fountaine, and I’m thrilled to welcome you to a space where well-being thrives and positive change takes root. As the founder of EMPOWER Possible, LLC, I bring over a decade of expertise in health promotion and change management.

Your journey with EMPOWER Possible is more than a mere path; it is an exploration of possibilities, and I am here to accompany you every step of the way.

Embarking on a Journey of Transformation:

The idea for EMPOWER Possible was inspired by a personal experience—navigating the challenges of burnout and witnessing the prevalent lack of support for employees across diverse organizations. Recognizing this profound gap in my community, I set out with a vision: to make a tangible difference by simultaneously addressing well-being and organizational development.

Let’s Connect:

I invite you to explore the possibilities of empowerment and well-being with EMPOWER Possible, LLC. Together, we’ll craft a narrative of growth, resilience, and success.

Cheers to your journey of empowerment!

Why Empower?

What sets me apart is my proficiency in developing and achieving strategic goals while actively engaging employees and leaders. My work has earned national recognition, including the Campus Prevention Network Seal of Prevention Award. I’ve led COVID-19 prevention efforts for a regional liberal arts college and collaborated with the Minnesota Department of Health to create a program plan for mitigating COVID-19 in higher education institutions.

At EMPOWER Possible, we embrace a holistic approach to self-development and change, emphasizing the three empowerments: the self, social networks, and the systems shaping our lives. By recognizing their interconnectedness and nurturing growth in these areas, we can enhance our skills and expand our capacities. As a certified change management specialist, I’ve played a role in supporting the well-being and development of numerous individuals, embodying the mission of EMPOWER Possible.

Let’s join forces to unlock your potential and pave the way to a brighter future. Reach out to me today, and let’s embark on this transformative journey together.
