In 2012 Julie became interested in the opportunities and support available for individuals on the Autism Spectrum. This interest was one of the factors that brought Julie, in early 2018, to North Carolina and to iCan House where she quickly became a valuable addition – as a volunteer.
Julie enjoys exercise at YMCA daily as well as working as a volunteer at Peacehaven farm in Whitsett North Carolina on a regular basis. Additionally, Julie loves landscaping, gardening, and spending quality time with her family. Her family includes Marla (a long-haired mini-dachshund) and Lupe (a wire-haired pointer rescue mix from Puerto Rico).
Julie loves working with the members of iCan and feels she learns from them as they are learning from iCan. Helping others is where Julie finds her joy, and she is thrilled to now be a part of the iCan House program staff.
