I was fortunately given the opportunity to attend Northern Michigan University, which is known for its outstanding art programs. In 2005, I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree of Fine Art with a concentration in Graphic Communication. I also received a minor in English.
After graduating from Northern Michigan University I began my career as a graphic designer full time at a marketing/printing company. I worked at this company for ten years where I designed for some of the most prestigious businesses in the area. In 2015, I decided to take my business ideas and design skills to the next level and began by own freelance business Julie's Graphic Design. Here I enjoy diving deep into my client's needs and establishing solid relationships, while delivering them customized branded marketing materials.
I live in the beautiful town of Petoskey, Michigan, which is located right along Lake Michigan. The community here is simply outstanding. I've never been in another place where the people are so friendly and genuine. 
My family consists of me, my husband, and my charismatic daughter Scarlett. Together we enjoy gardening, camping, hiking, and painting. Life is adventurous with a seven year old.
