After earning the highly coveted Library Award upon graduating Primary School, Julia put her love for books to practical use and completed a Bachelor of Arts in history with honours in politics at University of Wollongong. She has now moved on to a Masters of Applied Anthropology at ANU. Julia loves all things expressive, including music, art and literature. A keen researcher, she pursues the why, who, what, when and where of anything to do with people, places and politics.
Julia volunteers at the Batemans Bay Old Courthouse Museum, where she continues to develop her skills and passion for historical research.
