Julia grew up flying with her father and grandfather. She always loved flying but wasn't particularly interested in getting her license. However, in her twenties, she developed a fear of flying and started taking lessons to get over her fear. She never thought she would get her license, but with a lot of time and hard work, she did. Eager to learn more, Julia started working her way through the ratings. To her own surprise, she achieved her CFI in 2020 and her CFII in 2021. Julia has a degree in photography from the Art Institute of Philadelphia. She loves to travel and hopes to someday combine her two passions of photography and flying.
