Growing up with an affinity for health care, Dr. Julie knew she wanted to help people from a very early age. While she wasn’t sure exactly how, she began her journey as a pre-med student at the University of California, Santa Barbara. During her second year at UCSB, a friend introduced Dr. Julie to chiropractic. This friend’s father was a chiropractor. Dr. Julie was intrigued by hearing it described as a healing art form done by hand. She had no clue such a profession existed.

Dr. Julie made a quick trip to see her friend’s dad, who was a chiropractor, and she experienced her first adjustment. She was not suffering from aches or pains but was simply checking out her future career. At 20 years of age, she was healthy with only childhood asthma slightly affecting her. Immediately following her initial adjustment, she was able to breathe easier. It was clear, this was her calling! She was going to be a chiropractor.

Dr. Julie graduated from UCSB in 2000 with a BS in Biopsychology and began her studies at Life Chiropractic College West in 2001. During her final year of clinic, she was an honors intern and participated in a chiropractic mission trip to El Salvador, providing care to hundreds of people in need. Dr. Julie graduated magna cum laude in 2005 and opened her fist office in Folsom, California. She relocated to Petaluma to open Serendipity Chiropractic in 2006. She has won Best Chiropractor in Petaluma for several years running, the most recent being 2019.

Dr. Julie has been married to her husband Kyle since 2000. She had two beautiful home water births, giving birth to her “mini-me’s”, Morgan (2012) and Lucy (2105). Outside of the office, their family loves to camp, hike, travel and spend time with friends and loved ones.
