Julie is a graduate of St. Joseph Central Catholic High School and earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Bowling Green State University and a master's in business administration from the University of Toledo. Shortly thereafter, she felt a strong desire to pursue a career in the funeral industry. In the summer of 2005, the funeral home's former owners invited Julie to work alongside them to learn every aspect of the business. During that time, she earned her Ohio insurance license and funeral director's license. Julie enjoys the challenge of personalizing each and every service she works on, from traditional to modern.
When not at work, Julie can be found teaching fitness classes, advising the Jackson Busy Beavers 4-H Club or tending her herds of Maine Anjou and Miniature Hereford cattle, a hobby introduced to her by her husband and now shared with their son.
