Co-Founder & Editor-In-Chief
of Green Philly Blog
Julie is a local sustainability expert, writer, speaker and social media marketing maven. She’s been quoted in Philadelphia Magazine, She Knows, CNN, Metro and MNN. She has spoken about sustainability, blogging and social media for the DVGBC Tri-States Sustainability Symposium, Barcamp Philly and Walnut Hill College. As a Penn State alumni, she exudes passion in anything she tries.
Although she’s been writing novels since the 4th grade, she never dreamed to be a blogger – it happened out of love for sustainability, communicating online and spreading the green gospel minus the boring. Many workshops, lessons and WordPress mishaps later, she trains others with these invaluable online tools.
Permanently with a compass, her all-time favorite passion is traveling, whether to explore a new urban jungle, taste local dishes or enjoy nature’s beauty across the globe. She tackles vegetarian recipes with determination, in recent years morphing into an amateur cook. Although she loves being active and will try any sport, her lack of coordination will always get the best of her. (That doesn’t stop her from trying…)
When she’s not biking, googling her CSA vegetables or laughing in the park with wine and friends, she works as a Social Media Manager and freelancing. Her favorite things include craft beer, cheese, platypuses, heartfelt advice and her devious tabby cat.
