She loved to sing and act, and as the daughter of to classical musicians, a career in performing seemed to always be in her future. In her early teens, Julia discovered a love for performing in comedies and would continue to hone her craft through high school.

At certain point, though, Julia hit a wall. She suddenly seemed to stop getting work, and realized talent alone would not get her to the next phase of her career as a performer.
