A Georgetown graduate, Julia worked on the Hill as the youngest full time legislative staffer in the 107th Congress, then became a journalist, with bylines in the NYT, New York Magazine, Newsweek, The Guardian, and regular columns, including Time Out New York, ELLE, as well as a syndicated column for Tribune Media on technology and social media.
At the age of 27, she was featured on the cover of WIRED magazine as a prototype for a new kind of media, and has since been written about in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, LA Times, Washington Post, Slate, New York Magazine, Rolling Stone, Forbes and dozens of other publications.
Julia has appeared hundreds of times as a commentator on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, MTV, and E, had her own TV show on Bravo, and has spoken on stages around the world.
Her mission is to be a force for positive transformation, creating a world of harmony, health and love that honors all beings.
Taking the tools she learned as a journalist, Julia now teaches social justice activists how to craft media strategies that contribute to the public conversation with solutions for these issues, inspiring collective social action through strategic media coverage.
As such, Julia has landed many positive stories for worthy causes - both for her clients and pro bono - in the New York Times, WSJ, The New Yorker, Entrepreneur, LA Times, Forbes, cover of San Francisco magazine, etc.
She is particularly passionate about issues like women’s empowerment & reproductive rights, health (particularly mental but also physical and emotional), the environment (climate change), animal welfare, responsible psychedelic legalization and justice advocacy work.
Originally from the shores of Lake Michigan (just north of Chicago), she has lived in … a lot of places. A lot. New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, DC, even Ubud, Bali - but for the last two years, she’s resided in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Considering herself a “type A bohemian,” she has an Oura ring, meditates daily with the Samsara app, has practiced yoga for almost two decades and been to Burning Man ten times. Yes, 10! She has an addiction to watching inspiring animal rescue stories on TikTok, and after the death of her beloved 17-year-old shih-tzu Lillydog in 2020, she’s almost ready to adopt a new shelter pup. Almost.
And of course, she loves Taylor Swift.
