High vibes and positive energy are her motto, and Julia loves to share the stoke with her clients. She is an ambassador for the High Fives Foundation, bringing opportunity to action sports. When Julia isn’t on the mountain or in the ocean, she is focused on fitness, health and wellness. After overcoming three hip surgeries due to chronic pain, she decided to immerse herself into health coaching, focused on helping injured athletes. Julia has been a sponsored athlete for major brands like GoPro, Spyder, POC, and Stöckli. Her post ski racing endeavers include adventuring and sharing her story through motivational speaking at engagements such as the SPIRI Injury Prevention Symposium, Sotheby’s, Ciena, and HFMA conferences.
