Julie is a fierce feminist, full stop. A mom, wife, and sister, Julie loves family and has been privileged to have a great one! Having a supportive family has led to: spending the first 15 years of her professional life working at with NGO’s with marginalized groups, particularly people living with substance use disorders and mental illnesses. She was also heavily involved in the community with women’s organizations and continues to be engaged in the fight for equity. Julie holds a Master of Education from StFx and teaches at the NSCC in Truro. In her “spare” time, she plants vegetables with her daughter and curses the deer.
