Bio

Julienne B. Ryan grew up in Queens having three communication choices: be funny​,​ fight​,​ or run really​,​ fast. Ironically​,​ everything she wanted to dismiss​,​ avoid​,​ or forget about her formative years has become useful now. Like a one-woman sustainability project​,​ she now encourages people to appreciate the parts of themselves that make them unique. Besides being a writer​,​ she is an organizational storyteller​,​ a keynote speaker​,​ a facilitator​,​ soft-skills trainer​,​ coach​,​ and—youBETTAhavenoticed—humorist. Most of what she's learned about communicating​,​ patience​,​ and performing comes from being married to a Dublin-raised Irishman. He is a man who never met a sentence he couldn’t make longer. As a result​,​ she's been trying to get a word in edgewise for years​,​ walking around looking like a 1960's Motown backup singer​,​ holding her hand up dramatically so she can distract him. If she times it right​,​ she can say a few words between his inhalations. But she has to be quick! As she has often said to her husband during their lively discussions​,​ “I’ve had me book learning." She thanks the faculty at Manhattan College where she received her BA in Psychology & Urban Studies​,​ and Teachers College at Columbia University where she earned her MA in Organizational and Development Leadership.
