Julie grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico in a very musical family. She began playing the violin at age 7 and spent her summers at Hummingbird Music Camp learning to sing and play new instruments. After high school, she moved to California and received a BA in Sociology from the University of San Francisco. Her love of children led her to a career working with families as a nanny. For the last 15 years, she has nannied and used her musical talents to engage and educate the children she has worked with. 

Julie’s most important and rewarding job has been being a mom to her 2 year old daughter, Santana. She was hoping to find a career where she could work with children and music, so she is elated to have the opportunity to show her musical talents at Ladybug Music. Hopefully, one day she’ll bring her violin in! We are so thankful she has joined our team.
