… People who give you their food, give you their heart.

Cesar Chavez

Julie is the newest addition to the AF&Co. team. California born and bred, she graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Public Relations. Immediately after that she moved to Australia on a quest to discover where her true passions lied.  While overseas, she fell head over heels for the wine, spirits and food culture and a year later returned to California and kick-started her professional endeavors.  Then in 2011 she moved from LA up to San Francisco and went on to earn her Level 4 Diploma from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust.  During her tenure here in the Bay Area, she has directed PR, marketing, editorial and sales projects for several companies including the San Francisco Wine Center, Premier Cru, Henry Wine Group and Maritime Wine Trading Collective. 


As a moonlighting writer, she is the former Editor-in-Chief of Drink Me Magazine and her works have been published in the Whisky Advocate, Wine Geographic, SOMA Magazine, Connoisseur Magazine, Grape Collective, OZY.com and more.  She currently writes for The Bold Italic and is also involved in an exciting new project spearheaded by the San Francisco Chronicle.

She loves traveling the world, volunteering with animals, writing poetry and nonfiction stories, and getting lost in the woods.  But most all, she loves her Jack Russell Terrier named Buddy.
