Julia has always loved the water despite growing up in landlocked Colorado. She swam throughout her childhood and college. When she wasn’t in class or at the pool, she spent her time in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, practicing yoga or learning new crafts. With an adventurer as a father, at just 1 and a half years old she was on a boat sailing the BVI. Since, she has been on sailing trips with her family every few years and also attended a summer Seamester program in 2019. There she was exposed to scuba diving, which deepened her love for the water. Julia studied Human Development and Family Studies at Colorado State University and worked as a Certified Nursing Aide. She has had many titles over the last couple years in addition to a CNA. She claims that the most filling was as an ice cream scooper, the most playful as a preschool teacher, and the one with the most sunshine as a lifeguard. Her inner adventurer and value for the importance of medicine decided it was time to move outside with her medical knowledge, and she became Wldnerness First Responder certified. Julia is always looking forward to being in and on the water for the summer.
