“THE COST OF CARING: How To Defeat Compassion Fatigue”

Julie Squires

Julie SquiresJulie Squires is a Certified Compassion Fatigue Specialist who brings a unique perspective and approach to support the sustained energy and passion of those exposed to the highly stressful and traumatic environment of animal welfare, veterinary medicine, lab animal research and animal rescue. She does this in a very distinct way, by empowering them to help themselves through easy-to-implement yet powerful, practices and insights.

Julie has over twenty-five years of experience within the veterinary industry leading organizations, developing and executing training, workshops and 1:1 coaching most notably for Nestlé Purina, Bayer Animal Health and IDEXX Laboratories. She is a Certified Compassion Fatigue Specialist through the Traumatology Institute. Julie’s clients also gain from her training and experience as a Certified Life Coach.

Her company, Rekindle LLC, offers on-site seminars, workshops, online courses and private coaching and is the result of the need Julie saw to help those that work with animals maintain their wellbeing and mental health. Julie lives in New York’s Hudson Valley with her husband John, pugs Ernie & Mabel and Gregg & Duane, their two cats.
