Although she was born in Miami, she lived in Haiti, where her parents were born, between the ages of 3 and 8. There, she learned the importance of experiencing your culture.

From a young age, she was exposed to diverse cultures, languages, and customs, all of which combined to shape the person that she is today.

Serving has always been a passion for Julie, as a leader at her schools, church and the community she has always been a servant for those in need. Our Meraki, Inc is a tangible extension of her heart.

 

To give, love, and serve.
