"Julie is a consummate professional, with tons of creativity and energy. She routinely unearthed interesting story ideas and great ways to present them, and her writing was sprightly and fun. She was wonderful to work with every time we interacted." --Michaela Jarvis, Executive Editor, Diablo Magazine

"Julie has been a key member of our business coverage team at Patch, where she helped coordinate business social media workshops and wrote a fantastically popular column about business openings and closings. Her passion for accuracy, consumer-focused approach, attention to detail and complete professionalism are of the highest caliber. When we added some marketing duties to her plate, she made sure to think creatively about how to best leverage what Patch has to offer. She knows how to think big. I would work with Julie again in a second." --Kari Hulac, Regional Editor
