Julie graduated from Minnesota School of Business in 2014 with an AAS in Veterinary Technology. She was hired on at AERC after her internship here in 2014; initially, she was a Triage/Technician Assistant, then she became a Emergency and Critical Care Technician. That ended up being the perfect department for her since she is passionate about emergency and critical care, and she has aspired to be in the emergency field since attending tech school!

Julie has a chihuahua mix named Remy who loves to snuggle. When he’s being naughty, however, he’s referred to as “The Creature!”

Julie enjoys dabbling in art and painting (watercolor, acrylic) and charcoal sketching in particular. Netflix bingeing, pontooning, and hiking in state parks with her family also factor high on her list of things to do for fun! When asked what she is “obsessed with,” Julie replies: “Spending time with my husband, toddler son, buffalo wings, Pomeranians, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Pinterest, and baking yummy treats!”
