Julie is a New York native, now residing in San Diego, CA, who graduated from Long Island University with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2019. During her undergraduate career she earned her BA in Dance and BS in Exercise Science from the University at Buffalo in 2014. Originally a dance major, she became interested in pursuing physical therapy after discovering the minimal concentrated resources for dancers and injury recovery/prevention. While writing a research paper about injury prevention in the dance studio setting, she stumbled upon the ballet blog, and has been an advocate of Lisa's knowledge and techniques ever since. She is a multifaceted therapist with experience treating professional dancers and athletes including performers from Disneyland and professional ballerinas.
