While there she also worked as a commercial model for companies like Thermaspa, IBM, Scholastic Books and more.

Having small children meant looking for a change, so she redirected her focus and found a new role as the manager of a brand new Bobbi Brown Counter.

When she started seeing Nurse Chelsey years ago she knew that she had not only found a talented practitioner with an amazing artistic eye, but also someone who made her feel like family when I walked into the clinic. Chelsey and the entire team at the clinic have always felt like her people. Julie feels that we all have the same purpose, and that's to empower women and men by providing knowledge and treatments that can help improve their confidence. 

Julie’s true nature is to share everything that is good. When she met Nurse Chelsey and the Team at The Cosmetic Clinic, she wanted to share their mission and knowledge with anyone who showed interest in what she can provide. 

Julie has been a longtime patient of The Cosmetic Clinic and is wonderful, kind and talented. We welcome her as our Brand Ambassador and are excited for her to share her continued journey perspective with you.
