Her goal is bridging the four through innovation and collaboration to cultivate interdisciplinary works to realize a brighter, more sustainable future for all life.

With over 20 years’ experience as a soloist on stages around the globe, as well as an insatiable curiosity and drive to help others realize their artistic visions, Julia is expanding her reach to arts advocacy and the production of new works of performing arts. She is currently pursuing a PhD with a focus on women in leadership in classical music.

When not performing or advocating for greater representation and innovation in the performing arts, Julia can be found adventuring outdoors with her three young sons and watching as much science fiction as she can find.
