Julia holds an undergraduate degree in Global & International studies with a focus on globalization and the environment.

Since graduating, she has been committed to knowledge mobilization transforming her thesis 'The Climate Virus' into 6 formats: a 160-page document, a 10-page executive summary, a short film, a 3-minute thesis pitch, a conference presentation and customized professional workshops.

Currently Julia is inspired by the need to cultivate a radical imagination for a new world that adequately addresses the complex socio-environmental challenges of today from a point of reconnection, regeneration, equity and justice.
