At the young age of 13 years old, Julie won the gold medal at the Canada-Wide Science Fair held in Vancouver, British Columbia in the Junior Life Sciences category. Her scientific research of close to 200 students between the ages of eight to eleven years old quickly helped modify the teaching methods used in both elementary and secondary schools. She was able to identify the numerous problems with the teaching methods used and she provided solutions to increase learning retention and ultimately lead to greater success.

In her twenties, Julie became a pioneer by becoming the first female Sales Representative on the road for a manufacturer of building materials. Her determination and drive made her a leader in the male-dominated industry. She increased sales by 325% in less than two years and won the award of New Business Development in her first year in that position.
