Ulli (pronounced like Julie without the J) first started working with internet technology in 1992 when the world wide web was still in its baby shoes and people relied on bitnet, archie, gopher, and veronica to get around online. As team member of an environmental data center that was launched by the United Nations Environment Program to provide internet access to scientific organizations in Central and Eastern Europe she trained scientists in online research using telnet, ftp, and other internet-based search features.

From this pioneering IT work in the early nineties, she ventured off into various marketing & management positions in the environmental nonprofit and corporate hospitality world. She helped design and implement global conservation campaigns for organizations such as World Wildlife Fund, worked with marketing agencies on the design and implementation of international educational and social marketing initiatives, and managed day-to-day operations of restaurants, hotels, wellness centers, and resort spas in Austria, Switzerland, and the US.

In 2008 she discovered web design and online marketing management as the perfect playground for her. Working at the interface of technology, creativity, and wellness allows her to put her technical and strategic skills as well as her creative mind and deep passion for healthy, sustainable living to work.

Ulli loves clear, uncluttered design, marketing that informs, inspires and encourages meaningful dialogues and businesses that live up to their social and environmental responsibility. With her web design and marketing skills she focuses on helping wellness destinations, mindbody professionals and creative entrepreneurs successfully launch and promote destination retreats, online programs and transformative journeys that empower people to proactively take charge of their wellbeing.

Her passion for healthy, sustainable living and her entrepreneurial spirit led her to the launch two other enterprises that focus on the design and marketing of wellness retreats: The Wellness Agency, which she founded in 2008 and Pomale, the latest addition to her body of work.
