Julia chose the field of Nutrition in 2001 and became a certified fitness instructor in 2013. She enjoys supporting and motivating patients to improve their physical and mental state of being. Through battling chemical dependency and entering recovery herself, Julia discovered her passion for helping others fight active addiction.

Julia believes that Nutrition and movement is paramount for early recovery and is dedicated to creating awareness regarding the role of nutrition and exercise in achieving lasting recovery.
Because struggling with nervous system regulation is very difficult in early sobriety, Julia works as a Breath and Stretch Coach with our patients. Learning the tool of breathing for proper parasympathetic activation is a priceless treasure for short and long-term recovery.
