Julie was fortunate to grow up with a cottage in Muskoka that fostered her love for the outdoors. In 2015, she graduated from Lakehead University with a Forestry degree and became an Operations Forester in Northwestern Ontario, where she spent the next 6 years. Her passion for forestry education, public outreach and outdoor activities made the Communications Forester at BMFC a natural fit. She joined the team in March 2022 and is very pleased to be closer to her roots.
