An Oregon native, Julia grew up splitting her time between a farm outside of Canby, Oregon, and the city of Portland. After graduating from St. Mary’s Academy, she headed north to attend Pacific Lutheran University where she double majored in Economics and English Literature.
Soon after graduation, she took a job with Liberty Mutual Insurance where she rose through the ranks as a commercial underwriter. As an underwriter, she honed her analytical skills to make informed, data-based decisions for her clients. This expertise positions her well to support Sitka’s mission as a business analyst.
In her free time, she enjoys sharing her Brazilian heritage with her husband, traveling the world, and volunteering at her church.
