Julie was born and raised in Southern California then moved to Seattle, WA about three years ago and is staying put. The Pacific Northwest feels like home to her. She grew up camping pretty frequently going to Yosemite National Park every year since she was three years old. That is where her love for nature and the outdoors began. As a designer in the Interior Architecture field she is acutely aware of our impact on the nature through design. She looks to nature as her inspiration, as a constant reminder to design with sustainability in mind.
