She sought out the Integrative Medicine Fellowship at the University of Arizona under the tutelage of Integrative Medicine leader Dr. Andrew Weil. In 2015 she graduated from the Fellowship Summa Cum Laude. Her goals are to help individuals find the roots of health rather than simply managing chronic disease states. Julie believes health and healing can be found using an integrative approach, which relies heavily on prevention and wisdom to transform the mind, body and spirit.
