Recently transported from Virginia Julie is having a great time getting to know our beloved city of New Haven. Getting the opportunity to explore the Nutmeg state is an adventure she is ready for with lots of local landmarks, parks and restaurants already on her list. In fact, Julie is also an avid foodie and on one recent trip met Rick Steve and Andres Zimmerman. Lithuania is one of her favorite places to visit, being
Lithuanian but also enjoys making homemade pizzas. Traveling and exploring  ultures and over the years has made lifelong friendships throughout her travels. Staying active is important so kayaking in Kennebunkport, scuba diving in Belize and hiking in Germany only serve to inspire her designs and creativity.
