Julia was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. She discovered her passion for theatre in the sixth grade when her music teacher encouraged her to join the choir and audition for the school musical. Eleven year old Julia was cast as "Gertrude McFuzz" in Seussical Jr., and has been acting ever since.
Julia has performed all throughout the country, portraying roles that exhibit her quirky yet commanding persona, as well as her sharp-witted yet elegant demeanor. Equally at home in both contemporary and classical musical theatre styles, she has performed such diverse roles as "Lilli Vanessi/Kate" in Kiss Me, Kate, "Vivienne Kensington" in Legally Blonde, "Rusty" in Footloose, "Jovie" in Elf: The Musical, and "Lucy Grant" in Bright Star.
Julia graduated in May of 2019, receiving her Bachelor of Music from the Music Theatre and Opera program at Arizona State University. Immediately following, she moved to Charleston, South Carolina for a year long Resident Actor position with Charleston Stage. Cut a few weeks short due to Covid-19, Julia moved home to Arizona for the following year and focused heavily on developing her own private vocal studio. She is currently back in Charleston for her second year residency with Charleston Stage, and could not be happier to be back on stage.
While not performing, Julia likes to stay active and spend time in the great outdoors. Having lived in Arizona the majority of her life, she grew up hiking and camping- often with her sweet golden retrievers, Holly and Henry. Julia loves animals, as well as fashion, photography, and a nice glass of pinot noir.
