Julie started at WLUC-TV6 in October 2017 as a Multimedia Journalist. Julie graduated from Loyola University Chicago in 2016 with a B.A. in Journalism and a Minor in Political Science. She is a Kalamazoo native and is excited to be moving to the Upper Peninsula.

During Julie’s time at Loyola University Chicago she was a member of the Loyola News Chicago broadcast team. Julie was able to get hands-on experience for all positions in the newsroom and was the primary reporter on most occasions.

Julie was an intern at WTTW, Chicago’s PBS-affiliate. While interning for WTTW’s ‘Chicago Tonight’ and ‘Week in Review’ she worked closely with Phil Ponce and was able to pitch story ideas and accompany reporters and producers on stories. She was able to shadow a reporter to the court hearing indicting Chicago Police Officer Jason VanDkye of first-degree murder charges in the 2015 shooting of Laquan McDonald.

Julie loves her Michigan sports teams, especially the Detroit Red Wings. She also loves the Detroit Tigers and is a longtime Chicago Cubs fan.

Julie loves being on the water and cannot wait to get out on Lake Superior. She is an avid kayaker and loves to paddleboard whenever she can. Julie loves the sunshine and summertime but is excited to get out her cross country skis once the snow falls.
