Julia has been working her brand of web skills for nearly a decade. She started out as a designer for an internal marketing group at a travel agency in Los Angeles, and quickly honed her skills as a web designer using HTML/CSS. Her creative nature drove her to find work at Hallmark Cards, Inc. She worked mostly on Flash development and on projects such as the Product (RED) campaign and Hallmark’s site re-design. In 2007, her team was awarded the AIGA award for Web Design as a result of their work on the Product (RED) microsite.

She first learned about Django after attending the 2008 SXSW Interactive Festival. She was amazed at how rapidly you can create useful web applications using Djang. Shortly after the festival, she left Hallmark to work at the Lawrence Journal World as a Junior Designer/Developer, where Django originated. She worked on projects such as Ellington CMS and Marketplace, where she developed applications, designed templates, and wrote client-side documentation.

Julia joined the Caktus Consulting Group in 2011 and is thrilled to work with some of the most talented developers this side of the Mississippi. She is actively involved with Girl Develop It RDU as an instructor to help contribute in educating women pursuing a career in technology.
