Growing up in St. Louis City, Julia witnessed firsthand the important impact that a safe, positive school environment has on children. Having been influenced by her hard-working parents and excellent teachers, she stepped outside of her comfort zone and moved to Fulton, Missouri after high school to attend Westminster College, earning a  Bachelor’s Degree in two concentrations—Political Science and Philosophy—with a minor in Pre-Law. Julia’s been a mid-Missouri resident ever since that time, pursuing and obtaining her law degree at the University of Missouri where she focused on courses, extracurricular activities, and practical experience emphasizing public service.
