Julia transitioned to beach volleyball halfway through her collegiate athletics career. She played indoor volleyball for the Tar Heels at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. While at UNC, Julia sustained multiple concussions, leading her to switch to beach volleyball and transfer to the University of Hawaii, where she finished her undergraduate degree. After Hawaii, Julia had two years of eligibility left. She started grad school at the University of Southern California, where she finished her college athletics career as an All-American and back-to-back National Champion. She won the Atlanta Gold Series with Geena Urango in just her first year on Tour and won the 2022 Rookie of the Year. Julia is an Olympic hopeful in pursuit of Paris 2024. Her best finish on the FIVB was when she won Silver at an Elite 16 in Torquay, Australia.
Outside of beach volleyball, Julia loves spending time with friends and family and being involved in her church community. She enjoys the outdoors, biking, cooking, pottery, and spending time in the Bible while sipping a nice cup of coffee.
