Julie’s 2015 e-book, An Unlikely Place: Adventures at Kitengela Kenya — A Safari for the Soul is a pithy and delightful spiritual memoir/ travelogue describing a middle-aged American woman’s adventures at a truly unique place: a glass-blowing art community, animal sanctuary, and conservation habitat in the African bush. The life-changing adventure begins long before the author gets on a plane however, as she faces raw fears about taking such a big trip, receives unexpected heart health news, and finds her wellspring of courage.

She is also a budding and award-winning photographer, and loves blending words and images into powerful messages of WordArt.

Julie approaches all that she does with integrity, respect, curiosity, and humor. She takes her work seriously and yet likes to cite the immortal Groucho Marx, who knew that some things in life are so serious you can only make fun of them, saying:

groucho-glasses “These are my principles. If you don’t like them, I have  others.”
