Born and raised in Denver, Julia has an equal appreciation for the oceans and the mountains. After spending time in the Caribbean, she became passionate about ocean conservation. Upon seeing how much plastic and waste was created by tourism and human inhabitation, she knew something had to be done to stop the imminent threat to the wildlife and marine ecosystems. Through her work with Aquatopia, she is helping to protect the oceans and waterways that she cares so much about.
