From a broad, eclectic background & travel to places representing almost all the letters of the alphabet – Antarctica to Chile & Thailand to Yugoslavia, Julie’s career has included psychology, nursing, pharmacy, military, recreation, writing & editing.
Armed with two degrees & three languages, Julie brings diverse experience to the WOW editorial team. She is looking forward to collaborating with the broad array of practitioners & WOW content contributors from around the globe to bring her passion & flair for all things editorial to the WOW community.
Apart from co-parenting two dynamic teens, Julie’s other superpowers are parallel parking, touch typing & Auslan. She’s currently tackling the challenges of cryptic crosswords to keep up her life learning quota. When she’s not editing for WOW, Stride Publishing or writing for others, Julie is ‘Resparking the Joy’, renovating or upcycling clothing or furniture, volunteering as a Primary Ethics teacher or working with locals to help reduce & redirect household waste in the community.
Following moves from New Zealand, Adelaide then Sydney, Julie & her family settled on the Central Coast of NSW in Australia. They are often strolling on the beach with family Border Collie, Piccolo, or cycling to cafes along the waterfront. Julie manages life’s demands with the regular practices of walking, yoga, meditation & gratitude.
