Born in St. Petersburg, Florida and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Julie attended the University of South Florida where she received her BA in Theatre Design in 2012. Julie graduated with her MFA in Costume Design from University of California, Irvine in 2015.
In the summer of 2013, Julie worked at Western Costume Company under Bobi Garland in the research library and assisted with costume research for new film and television projects, as well as helped digitally catalogue Western’s Star Collection of film and TV costumes.
During the summer of 2014, Julie was fortunate enough to have been chosen as the Costume Design Intern for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences internship, which only takes one intern a year. She worked at United American Costume helping with major TV and film productions, and also worked with two different major TV/Film designers during her time with the Academy.
