Julia joined Special Olympics New Zealand as the Regional Sports Coordinator for the Lower North Island. She was recently appointed to the role of Regional Team Leader - Community & Coach Development for the Lower North and South Island, based in the Manawatu.
Julia is an enthusiastic supporter of her two sons’ sport and is a keen walker and gym lover. In her down time Julia has a passion for travel, good food and wine, is an avid reader and is currently training for a half-marathon. She, her sons and her husband are re-vegetating their five acre lifestyle block with native plantings and share their home with a crazy cat, five sheep, four friendly tui and other native bird life… and a paddock of Christmas trees.
Before joining Special Olympics New Zealand, Julia’s past work experience included regional tourism marketing and event and recreation programme management.
