As Climbing magazine’s first female Editor in Chief, Julie has spent a third of her life writing, shooting, and editing stories about climbing and the outdoors. With a genuine documentary style, she uses adventure as a way to experience the world and help the people in it. She’s written about the refugee crisis on the island of Kalymnos, a climbing camp for cancer survivors, and seeing death firsthand in Mexico.
In 2017, the OR Daily named Julie one of the 26 Most Talented People in the Outdoor Industry. Based out of a van named Betsy, she and her 60-pound lap dog named Lizzie roam the U.S. looking for stealthy parking spots and free wifi. Wherever you need her, she'll go.
