She has worked as a dog daycare assistant, an artist's assistant, a freelance writer and copyeditor, an HR and Benefits coordinator, a barista, a library assistant, and a caretaker of humans, dogs, cats, gerbils, and geckos. In 2020, she graduated from UMass Amherst with a degree in Digital Media and Communications.

Julia is currently working at Felix Doolittle as the manager of wholesale and shipping, and spending her nights and weekends drawing every animal and plant she sees. If you want to follow her daily thoughts on food, music, all the animals on her commute, hockey, politics, why it's impossible to find a good pair of pants, children's books, and whatever else crosses her mind on any given day, she can be found mostly on her Instagram.
