Julia’s love of travel was ignited in college when she studied French in Martinique and then attended Global Semester, where she studied abroad in Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Egypt, India, Thailand, Hong Kong, China, and South Korea. She had countless adventures abroad as a professional aerial acrobat for nearly 20 years, performing and coaching all over the world. After creating the aerial industry in San Antonio, running her own successful aerial performance company and school, and serving as the marketing director for the New England Center for Circus Arts, Julia is thrilled to re-engage with travel education at Putney, sharing the power of educational experiences abroad. Since moving to Vermont, Julia has become an avid potter and enjoys the fact that New England actually has seasons!
