Julia has been an active member of Toastmasters since 2003, having been awarded Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) in 2009 and again in 2017. Julia has served her clubs in all seven officer positions and served twice as an Area Director for District 3, which encompasses most of Arizona.

Julia is the proud mother of two grown daughters and grandmother to three young grandchildren. She enjoys hiking on the many local Phoenix Mountain Preserves trails, even in summer – which means being at the trailhead by 5 a.m., to “beat the heat.”
Julia also belongs to a small Dungeons & Dragons role playing group, which meets twice monthly. Her player characters have included a Gnome Bard, a Half-Elf Rogue, and a Dragonborn Sorcerer. She envisions a half-Gnome Paladin as her next potential character.
