Julie hails from South Otago and started with DairyNZ in early 2014. After attending high school in Dunedin, she headed North to study for a Bachelor of Veterinary Technology at Massey University.
Since graduating she has been based in the Manawatu region working in both technical and on-farm roles in the dairy industry for the last 2 years. At the same time, she has been working on completing an AgriScience degree with just a few papers left to achieve that feat.
In her spare time, Julie loves to get outdoors and stay active, enjoying both tramping and team sports.
