Originally from Greenfield in Glengarry County, Julia grew up on a hobby farm with a love & passion for all living creatures, especially horses. Her love affair with Ottawa began in her teens with summer jobs at the Royal Canadian Mint. Her first career in animal health technology had her working at an equine clinic in the Guelph area after graduation. In 1986 a move lead her family to relocate to Ottawa for the high tech opportunities. There she raised her 4 wonderful children and has since called the Ottawa area her forever home. As her children grew independent Julia’s entrepreneurial drive established her as the owner/manager of a very successful web and graphic design company working primarily with the real estate industry from 1995. Her 16 years of small business acumen has transitioned to working with the Distinctive Homes Team since 2011. Now as an integral member of one of Ottawa’s most highly regarded residential real estate teams, she is an invaluable asset heading up our client communications, web presence, marketing, advertising and social media campaigns.
