All her life Julie has been swimming and surfing up and down Australia’s east coast. She grew up in Brisbane, taking time out every weekend to soak up the sunshine on the Gold Coast.
With a degree in Social Sciences, Julie had an extensive career in government before breaking into the wonderful world of marine conservation.
Although a Southport Yacht Club member for many years, she remains hopeless at sailing. Julie learns Russian in her spare time and loves to travel to Europe and the USA to visit her daughters.
Julie is a coffee addict, can’t pass up an invitation out to breakfast and in her other working life is a social media guru in Brisbane’s restaurant scene.
