    Julie is a 3rd generation California native married to a Frenchman and together they have 4 grown children.  Many of her family relations have served in the US military, but most were quiet about their experiences.  It wasn’t until her own son joined the Army in 2005 that she understood the sacrifices, pride, fear & emotional chaos involved with being a military family.  It was the isolation part that struck her the most since most civilians do not understand what it is all about.  It was a relief to discover the Military Family Support Group with her husband in 2009 (when their son was deployed in Afghanistan) and realize that here was a group of people who understood…who ‘got it’!  She has been an active member ever since. Her son is now a veteran.  In 2014 she took on the role as Facilitator of the organization with the goal of making El Dorado County military families feel valued & understood.
