Julie is an award winning writer, producer, and manager. She started her first career as a fashion designer in NYC after graduating with honors from The Fashion Institute of Technology. A few multiple career paths later, Julie turned her first blog, ‘from drabulous to fabulous’, into a TV show that she wrote, produced and hosted for Santa Monica City TV.
Julie’s the recipient of 8 Telly Awards, 7 Aurora Awards, an Indi Fest Award and three Emmy Nominations for her work with Women in Film’s PSA Program writing and producing 30 second spots to bring awareness to needy charities that can’t afford to make their own commercials. There she served on the Executive Committee and was the head writer for their TV extension partnership.
Throughout her life, people have always assumed Julie was younger than she is and upon turning 60 she was concerned that if people knew her real chronological age she would no longer be taken seriously in the business world. One ah ha moment later, and Julie realized that this type of thinking made her part of the problem. So she decided to fess up and be part of the solution. Julie relaunched her blog in 2020 as ‘life in the sixo’ and uses her platform to focus on Ageless Living. “This isn’t your Grandmas 60!”
Julie lives in Los Angeles with her husband and is a Mom to one beautiful human and two fur babies.
