Born and raised in Philadelphia, Julia learned to swim at a very young age because her parents couldn’t keep her away from the waves at the Jersey shore. Throughout her age group years, Julia trained under world-renowned coach Richard W. Shoulberg at Germantown Academy and Germantown Academy Aquatic Club. She continued her education and swimming career at Johns Hopkins University, where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree. She joins Imagine with four summers of coaching and teaching experience under her belt. In her free time, Julia enjoys surfing, painting, shopping, and college football. While she holds a full-time job during the week, but couldn't stay away from her lifelong passion for swimming and coaching kids.
