Julie began her career working with children and families, leading social skills groups and working as a mentor within intervention programs. She furthered her career as a special education teacher for students in the third through sixth grades, became an early elementary teacher for third grade, and is currently teaching first grade.
Julie grew up in Phoenix and graduated with her master’s degree from Arizona State University. She loves working with children, and has always been fascinated with how each person's mind works differently. It is her passion to inspire children socially and academically.
When she isn’t working with students, she and her husband are supporting their two daughters and their love of the stage. Her youngest daughter is a member of Legacy Ballet Academy, and has participated in The Nutcracker Suite for four years. Supporting Legacy Ballet Foundation and their dancers brings their family great joy.
