Among her numerous accomplishments, Julie is a 2-time Olympic gold medalist (1996 and 2004) and a silver medalist (2000). A champion both on and off the field, she has been an outspoken advocate on behalf of gender equality in sports and was at the forefront of the recent Title IX policy debate.

Her stellar career began with her debut at the age of 16 with the national team in 1987.

She was also co-captain of the 1999 team that captured the FIFA Women's World Cup in the USA.

Revolutionizing the world of professional sports for women, Julie is one of the founding players of the first-ever Women's Professional Soccer League (the WUSA) in which she played for the San Diego Spirit, where she reigned as captain. She was also the only voting player representative on the WUSA Board of Governors.

Foudy is a graduate of Stanford University where she earned a degree in biology and decided to forego her acceptance to medical school in order to pursue her dreams as a professional athlete. While at Stanford, she was a four-time National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-American. Among her many accolades, she was named 1991 Soccer America Player of the Year, the 1989 Soccer American Freshman of the Year and a Hermann Trophy finalist in 1991 and 1992. She won Stanford's Outstanding Athlete Award for her freshman, sophomore and junior years and was named "Soccer Player of the Decade" by The Los Angeles Times.

A woman of strong conviction, Julie was awarded the FIFA Fair Play Award in 1997 for her work against child labor. She is the past President of the Women's Sports Foundation and was recently named by The Sporting News as one of the "Most Powerful People" in sports. In 2006, Julie Foudy and her husband launched The Julie Foudy Sports Leadership Academy. The Academy offers week-long programs for girls ages 12-18 and weaves together soccer instruction along with leadership training. She is also a contributing editor for Self magazine, an analyst for ABC/ESPN and most recerntly covered the 2008 Beijing Olympics for NBC.

In her presentations, Julie shares her experiences of her stellar career as well as her formula for success both on the field and in life.
