Julie Jeske and Nikki Weaver

Julie and Nikki have been friends for over 6 years. The first time they spent an afternoon together they were both pregnant. They ate ice cream, went for a long walk and talked about life and love and birth and death and joy and grief. Since that afternoon they have shared a deep friendship and many more conversations (and playdates and ice cream cones). This past year they have loved co-facilitaing retreats for groups of women. And they have each enjoyed a trip to Italy. They are so excited to blend their love of travel and their love of gathering with women to bring you Vibrant Living in Italy!

Julie Jeske Cinque TerreJulie Jeske, LPC is a sex and relationship counselor. She has a private practice in Portland, Oregon where she helps clients increase intimacy, ignite passion and deepen their connection to themselves and others. Julie especially loves to help women prioritize their own wants and needs, embrace pleasure and explore sensuality! She loves gathering with groups of women both personally and professionally. Magic happens when you connect with others, share and are witnessed.

She is fueled by her daughter, curiosity, creativity, travel, pleasure and vanilla lattes.
