What’s your Story?
Julie resides in London, Ontario. Her hobbies/interests include: exercising, traveling, being with friends and family (and especially spending time playing with her two nephews), diabetes advocacy and education, and just being outside and enjoying what nature has to offer. Julie has been working as an occupational therapist in private practice in the auto sector for the past 6 years but hopes to take some time off soon to travel and compete in triathlons and marathons across Canada and the rest of the world!
Julie will never forget the amazing ambiance at Connected in Motion’s Winter Slipstream 2009 at the YMCA Wanakita in Haliburton.
What keeps you ‘In Motion’?
In December of 2004, Julie completed the Honolulu Marathon as a member of Team Diabetes Canada and in October of 2007, she completed the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon as one of 21 selected Global Heroes. Julie’s experiences meeting and running with other individuals from around the world with medical devices and sharing/hearing their inspiring stories were amazing. She enjoys being outdoors and exercising whether it be swimming, cycling, hiking, or running.
Words of ‘Betes Wisdom
As diabetics, we can accomplish anything we want to (it just requires a little extra planning/preparation, dedication and a positive attitude)! Diabetes is a disease that we can control and it is not a disease that should control our lives.
