  2. Today’s Guest Julie Farrell Founder Speaker’s photo Julie Farrell is

    the founder of PlanHero®. Intensely curious, she’s worked with lasers and missiles, bungee-jumped in New Zealand and Oregon, crawled under Egypt’s pyramids, and been lifted in an elephant’s trunk. She's the mother of two young men, is married to Mason, and holds a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering. Volunteering and community service have always been an integral part of her family ethos.
