Julie has a passion for helping businesses develop their brand and public image. After graduating from Southern Oregon University’s art program in 2000, she almost embarked on a career in photography, but then followed her heart and pursued graphic design, focusing first on print and brand design, then adding website design and development to the mix. Having worked for design firms throughout Canada and the United States, she is delighted to have settled on beautiful Vancouver Island, and has been a proud member of the Caorda team since 2016.
Outside of Work
Julie loves spending time traveling, taking photos, writing, designing jewellery, baking, beachcombing, and watching movies with her husband and two cats. She proudly volunteers with a local wildlife education organization. She spent a lot of time performing on stage as a percussionist with a variety of orchestras and symphonic bands during her youth, and longs to return to it soon. She’s also obsessed with jigsaw puzzles.
