Julie is no stranger to Gig Harbor. She has lived here for 30 years, and she and her husband raised their two sons in the Gig Harbor community. She loves being around people, a result of growing up in a big family. “I have four brothers, two sons, nine nephews, and a grandson," Julie shares. “It makes for great pick-up football games at family gatherings!”
An outdoor enthusiast with a love for the water, Julie spends her free time with her family exploring the many mountain ranges and kayaking. Julie has competed in more than five triathlons individually and has won two triathlons with a relay team, where she participated in the swim portion.
Since the inception of Gig Harbor Living Local, Julie has been closely connected with community business owners providing solutions to market and grow their business. "I am passionate about helping others succeed and feel extremely fortunate to work in a community I love."
Her favorite quote gives one a glimpse into not only her success but also her passion for what she does: "Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally". -David Frost ..
