Get to Know Julia
Besides being with your family, what do you do when you are not busy being a lawyer?
When I am not with my family or busy being a lawyer I am most likely to be found on my yoga mat, working on a piece of creative or non-fiction writing, or curled up somewhere with a good book. I also love doing anything that is active and outdoors.
What is the best book you have read in the past two years?
“The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho. I have read this book several times over the past few years and with each reading have taken something new from it to apply to my own life.
Cat or dog person, and what kind?
I am definitely a dog person. As for what kind, I have a soft spot in my heart for any kind of rescue dog.
