Julie completed her undergraduate work in psychology and philosophy at Seattle Pacific University in 1996. While attending SPU, she received Outstanding Psychology Student for two consecutive years. She volunteered at University of Washington's Experimental Education Unit, working with behaviorally challenged children. She also worked as a volunteer, Guardian Ad Litem for King County, advocating for abused and neglected children who were dependents of the State of Washington.

Julie earned her Master of Arts in counseling psychology from St. Martins University in 2002.

She volunteered at Crisis Clinic of Thurston and Mason County, as both a phone worker and a volunteer trainer. She also volunteered at SafePlace in Thurston County.

Julie did her graduate internship at Monarch Children's Justice and Advocacy Center. During her internship, she received the WCSAP (Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs) core training on sexual assault. She specialized in providing treatment to children, teens and adults who had survived childhood sexual abuse through individual and group therapy. She also provided support and advocacy for non-offending parents of children who had been sexually abused. She continues to train graduate level interns to provide group therapy to children at Monarch. She provides this specialized treatment by incorporating strong advocacy skills during individual therapy with her clients at Sea Mar.

She enjoys reading, art, and traveling to Mexico.
