In his words, “I love inspiring parents and students to get a great education and overcome the barriers in their way.

Julia loves helping students develop the leadership skills to open new doors of opportunity and growth. In her own words, “The thing I love most about mentoring is the opportunity to connect one on one with youth—getting to know their quirks, their dreams, and their joys. It is incredible to witness their personal growth and development as they learn and experience new things.”

Over the past eight years, Julia has mentored thousands of youth at BSA camps, AFY camps, and in private classes. Julia completed a degree in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University and enjoys reading, hiking, camping, and canyoneering with her husband, Jordan.
