In 2020 when our schools were closed due to COVID-19 we decided to embark on a journey of professional growth and development. I brought Julie Wassom onboard to coach our corporate and franchise school leaders on inquiry conversion and school-level marketing and my team responded very positively to Julie’s encouraging and kind coaching style. Throughout her time with KLA Schools, Julie’s industry knowledge and expansive skill set also helped us solidify our marketing department, layout a data-driven marketing strategy for the next two years, and grow the KLA Schools brand. Julie’s tried and true program is a large part of why KLA Schools was able to emerge from the COVID-19 closures stronger than ever. Julie is second to none in the industry and I highly recommend her for any education company that is serious about creating a culture of enrollment growth.

Roberto Ortega

CEO, KLA Schools, Miami FL

As the Chief Operating Officer of the company, I must say I am delighted at the results we have achieved together… an increase of 12% capacity utilization is the best performance I have experienced in my tenure in this multi-unit industry!
Karen Stokes

COO, Xplor Childcare, TX

Julie Wassom is a consummate professional – from the preparation and homework she does on an organization beforehand, to the thoughtful and catered attention that she provides throughout the experience – working with her makes an organization better. She encourages open-mindedness and thinking differently, while simultaneously bringing in best-practices and critiques from the field and from her expert-level experience. Julie’s approach requires institutions be accountable for creating marketing strategies and tracking processes which yield results – those results being more families feeling connected to and engaged with their community.
Zach Rolf

Director of Learning and Engagement, Temple Emanuel, CO

We are doing great with our wait list due to all the lessons you have taught me. Julie, you keep current with what is happening now. You know how to help us connect with all communities, which keeps us full in enrollment. I really love your e-mails and all your wonderful advice. You are the best with marketing.

Darlene Johnston

Director/Owner, The Little Mud Puddles Learning Center, Freemont CA

On every occasion, Julie delivered, making us better with bottom line results that were real. She is engaging, Directors love her and, if they do what she demonstrates, you will realize significant gains in your enrollment and retention. Julie’s organized, step by step approach makes marketing fun and “doable” for the Directors and staff. Julie is the real deal and has delivered for me every time with long term results which were sustainable and significant. The results are real and you will obtain positive results to your bottom line and an excitement level for your Directors which will impact the entire organization. Julie is worth her weight in gold.

Julie Wassom is one of the most effective consultants I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with… Her ability to train and coach our Jewish community’s nine early childhood centers toward excellence in marketing, enrollment conversion and family engagement was nothing short of miraculous. And it doesn’t stop there. Julie is also a superb project manager. She ably managed a complex initiative with nine sites and six consultants and many other vendors as part of our BUILDing Jewish ECE initiative. Julie and her team delivered remarkable results for all nine early childhood centers.

Your training has taken a group of educators (now directors) and turned them into sales people who are comfortable and confident converting leads into enrollments.

Gillian Gavurin

What you have taught me about marketing our center has been life-changing for me. The marketing component was missing for me, but I didn’t know it. It has now become second nature, and even my staff is starting to talk to center visitors in ways that assure us of getting more enrollments. You helped us change the way we think and do business.
