Julia is a native to Arizona , born and raised in Tucson . Julia moved to Show Low in 2004 to call it home. Her fear of the dentist as a child was her determination to change that for others. To bring a smile to a patient or to see a child jump in the dental chair because they are excited to be there makes her career that started back in 1984 very enjoyable from year to year. 

Her passion for Dental Hygiene had her involved with the American Dental Hygienist Association. She held positions as President of her Dental Hygiene class in college and was President-elect for the Southern Arizona Dental Hygiene Society.
