Julie holds an M.Sc. in Ecological Restoration from SFU/BCIT, where she focused on water quality in the Katzie Slough. Water has always been a large part of her life, either swimming, studying or just simply enjoying it. Julie has experience working in estuaries and freshwater systems in British Columbia including helping to build fish habitat structures in the Seymour River, and create wetlands in Logan Lake as part of her undergraduate degree. It is her life’s dream to continue to learn about water and to educate our communities on the importance of our glorious resource.
