Julia always had a propensity for entrepreneurship, cultivating valuable leadership lessons and skills while playing team sports. Julia’s entrepreneurial skills expanded when she collaborated with her husband and their three children as they grew a successful construction, development, and design business. Sadly, Julia and her husband lost the business during the 2008 recession, and four years later, her husband passed away, leaving Julia to raise their children. A woman of perseverance, Julia pivoted her career path and enrolled at New York University. Julia chose to major in Business Leadership and Management Studies with a concentration in International Business and Global Management. Julia can continue her plans to work in finance as a financial planner or venture into career opportunities such as sustainable international business. Julia hopes to build a modern marketplace on a global scale to be part of the solution for a better tomorrow.
