Hi, I’m Julia and I’m mother to Eva and Tommy. Born over-seas to a German mother and American Air Force father, Richmond has been the most recent home [to me] since 2003. Graduation from VCU in 2006 yielded a BA in Foreign Languages (German) and minor in Religious Studies (Eastern) and I recently became certified in the practice of Reiki.
FIT4MOM Richmond has been a constant in my life since joining Stroller Strides in October of 2015 and adding Body Back to the mix during the summer of 2016.
I’m excited to be the new FIT4MOM Richmond Event Coordinator. I’ve been given the opportunity to share some of the arts and crafts that I enjoy by planning and organizing Our Village playdates, crafts and after class activities, as well as helping manage our monthly Moms Night Outs and assisting Natalie in reaching out into the Richmond community and helping to fulfill FIT4MOM Richmond’s mission in reaching more moms! I hope to give back and pay forward as much as I've been given.
Interests include German literature, Buddhism, yoga, Reiki, animal and environmental welfare and appreciation, art, yoga, and of course getting buff with Stroller Strides and Body Back!
