Julia is at her happiest when she can sing both classical and musical theatre repertoire. She is an avid yogi and runner in addition to a former martial artist and dancer. Julia enjoys using these experiences to guide her exploration of singing and music-making as part of an integrated experience of the mind and body. She also loves all things epicurean, being an advocate for self-care, and spending time with her two cats.
