Julia has been swimming since 2011 starting at the YMCA in Southdale until she joined the Mariners in the summer of 2012. She joined the White Bear Lake Girl's team in 8t grade and still swims for White Bear today. Julia swims mid-distance events like the 200 free and is currently in 11th grade.
Julia started as an assistant coach in September 2016. She's currently an assistant coach for the Novice group.
Some advice Julia has for swimmers is, "Always work hard and go to practice every day even on the days you don't feel like it."
When Julia isn't at the pool she likes to shop, read and go to Chipolte.
