Meet Our Team...
MYF Event Director
I am an ERYT 500, YACEP Teacher and Owner of Scarborough Yoga, Co-Founder of sheJAMs, LLC and USA Triathlon Level 1 Coach. I have my Reiki Master and NASM Behavior Change Specialist certifications.
I began practicing Yoga while training for a half -ironman when my Chiropractor told me I could do more for myself than he could do for me and sent me to yoga. This was the beginning of a new journey. The Maine YogaFest fits beautifully into my goal of having a positive impact in my community and in the world.
I live in South Portland with my husband, youngest daughter, dogs and a cat who thinks he's a dog.
Julie Jordan Marchese
Julie had a long career in her family business at Jordan’s Meats. After the sale of the family business both her and her mom endured the diagnosis of breast cancer. Through this journey she found her real passion: Triathlons, raising money to find a cure for cancer and community. Julie completed her first triathlon just one year after her cancer diagnosis and was hooked! Julie is the founder of Tri for a CURE, which is an all women’s sprint triathlon that raises money for the Maine Cancer Foundation. Julie is also the co-founder of sheJAMs, LLC and Inspired Events, an event planning company. Working with people through exercise has been a passion - Maine Yoga Fest was a natural fit in connecting community for her.
