A lifelong educator, counsellor and advocate, Julie graduated with her MEd from the University of Victoria in 2000.
She has spent most of her career working in remote communities in Northern Manitoba and Yukon. Her work in helping develop the Yukon government's policy for children and families affected by disability led her to receive the Queen's Jubilee Medal in 2012.
For the last 10 years she has been artistic director of Ynklude, a multi-discipline arts group in Yukon that creates performance art, music and award-winning films.
She moved to the Slocan Valley in 2016 with her family, where she adopted a small flock of wild turkeys.
