When her first son was born, Julie worked at a YMCA that had a daycare making it ideal for her. However, one day they were going to have to close for lack of funds. She put her creative hat on and got permission to sell her handmade jewelry to raise money for the daycare. With that success under her belt she started her own businesses. 23 years later, she's still creating, and encourages every woman to be brave, study, train, teach and lead with her creative talents.
