Growing up in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Julie discovered her passion for veterinary medicine during her high school years. A local veterinarian visited one of her classes, and Julie eagerly seized the opportunity to shadow her at the clinic. This experience ignited her love for the field, leading to her role as a kennel technician.

While working in the veterinary industry, Julie cherishes various memories, but her favorite involves rescuing her heart dog, Roxy. Adopted at 7.5 years old, Roxy had experienced multiple homes before finding a permanent one with Julie. Their shared love for swimming at Lake Michigan created a special bond. Roxy taught Julie invaluable life lessons, particularly in empathy when helping owners bid farewell to their beloved pets.

With 13 years of diverse experience, Julie has held roles ranging from kennel technician in a local General Practice to assistant manager at a doggy daycare, encompassing Rescue and Specialty Medicine. Outside the clinic, Julie enjoys snowboarding, fostering animals, and pursuing her goal of visiting every supper club in Wisconsin.

Alongside her roommate Michelle, who also works in the veterinary field at the Wisconsin Humane Society, Julie is a proud pet parent to two dogs—Autumn, an 8-year-old Golden Retriever, and Chad, a 7-month-old Golden Retriever mix. They also share their home with Mr. Moob, a 3.5-year-old Domestic Shorthair Cat.

Currently serving as the Practice Manager at UrgentVet-North Shore, Julie and her team specialize in treating minor injuries and illnesses in cats and dogs, bringing compassion and expertise to every pet in need.
