As the daughter of an engineer, Julia grew up with an appreciation for the built environment. She graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Architecture in 2011 and has been working in design since then. She believes that there is always more to learn and is always on the lookout for opportunities to expand her knowledge of architecture and her love of history. She is excited to increase her experience in architecture through the variety of building types she encounters at MHAworks. When she is out of the office, Julia spends her time with her husband and two cats. She enjoys a variety of pursuits including a love of cooking, music, and theater balanced with practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
