Julie is a Charlottesville native who has had the pleasure of living throughout the beautiful state of Virginia. Working with young children has been a passion of hers since earning her Radiant Child Yoga Teachers certificate in 2010 after being solely a yoga instructor for adults. She joined the Our Neighborhood team at the start of 2016 as the Permanent Teacher in the Raindrop Room and then transitioned to a Family Link shortly thereafter. Her main passions here at ONCDC are deepening her understanding of the Reggio Emilia philosophy and her role as the Atelierista, helping children develop their own unique artistic languages. She looks forward to learning from and growing with you in our shared journey here at Our Neighborhood.
