Hi! I’m Julie. And this is my story…
I was originally born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I moved to Raleigh, NC when I was 25 because I decided it was time to get out of my comfort zone. So, I packed my car and my dog and drove to the east coast using a MapQuest print out for directions (there were no smart phones yet!).
In the Spring of 2014 I headed back to Texas to decide what I should do next. During this time, I ended up spending two months in Kaua’i because of a random opportunity that presented itself (and healed from my 6+ years in NC). Once I returned to Texas, I decided I would move to the west coast in September.
September 22, 2014, I moved to Friday Harbor (on a little island off the coast of WA called San Juan Island). When people ask how I ended up here, I tell them a Google search. Growing up in Texas, I didn’t even know these islands existed. When I decided I wanted move to WA, I was searching for different things to do on the coast and this place called Friday Harbor kept popping up… so I decided that I should move to the island and haven’t regretted it once!
I currently live in Friday Harbor on my sailboat that I purchased in April 2017 with Tucker and work as an online business strategist and web designer which allows me to work from anywhere as long as I have an internet connection… including remote little islands up here off the coast of WA.
