Biography



Julie was born in the heartland of America and grew up in the scenic woods and rolling hills of central Missouri. She was raised in a large family of artists and craftsmen who had a love for nature and the outdoors.

She took electives in art and photography in Jr. High and High School, but pursued Paralegal Studies at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO and went on to work for The Financial Relations Board in downtown Chicago, the nationís 5th largest Public Relations Firm at the time.
