About Juliette Watt
Born and raised in London, England, her first act was in the entertainment business. She was a stunt rider in films, a Playboy bunny dealing cards in a casino and sang in cabarets world-wide.
In her forties, she settled in New York and thrived as an Emmy-nominated scriptwriter, turning out more than seven hundred soap opera episodes and earning a six figure salary.
Her 2nd act began when she decided to become an ATP pilot and Master Flight Instructor. That work led her to helping animals at the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah and eventually flying rescue missions in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Over 6000 animals were saved.
And now Juliette’s mission is about making a massive impact and helping people create the life of their dreams.
In her own words: “I want to help people who have lost themselves in who they’ve been for everyone else.”
Her second mission; Compassion Fatigue – is a world she has lived for many years. For 40 years Juliette lost herself in the care of her mentally ill mother and then subsequently in the ten year constant care of neglected and abused animals. Through speaking, workshops and 1-1 coaching she helps her clients gain insights into this dark and devitalizing syndrome.
“The results of working with me is that people are energized to develop resiliency, recover their feelings of self-worth and are empowered to create a more positive and joyful life.”
Juliette lives in beautiful Pagosa Springs CO with her husband Jason, their 3 horses, 5 dogs, 4 goats, and a feral barn cat.
