An Idahoan by way of Pennsylvania and Oregon, Julie has always had a curiosity for technology, whether it be playing video games with her dad as a kid, learning HTML and CSS in grade school, or constantly searching for the latest mapping software to plan long runs and backpacking trips.
Julie graduated from the University of Maryland and worked in healthcare until her decision to move west to Bend. There, she found herself drawn to the brewing industry and worked as a professional brewer in Central Oregon and the Treasure Valley for 5 years.
After deciding to make a career change to software development, she attended and graduated from code school in Boise before joining the good folks at Foundry. She now happily lives in the world of React and Gatsby.
When not at the keyboard, Julie can be found exploring the endless trails of the Rockies and Cascades or on the river with her partner Cody and their chocolate lab. That is unless it’s football season, where it’s more likely to find her wherever the Eagles game is on.
