Julia joined the Get Organized! team with a passion for finding organizing solutions for individuals and families ready to enjoy a more comfortable life. She is a native of Illinois where she spent many years of her life on a farm. This proved beneficial to learning patience, perseverance, hard work, and growing her faith in God.
In 1989, as a newly married professional project manager, Julia and her husband were transferred from the western suburbs of Chicago to Plano, Texas. She began her journey as a stay-at-home mom when they had children, including years of volunteer work with schools, band boosters, church, and community.
As her family grew, Julia took her creativity and developed a home improvement business focused on restoration of kitchens, bathrooms, and furniture. As the owner and artist of Unique Creations, she worked with families of all types and budgets to make their homes one-of-a-kind spaces. Julia became very experienced with space planning, appliance and lighting configurations, hanging wall groupings, and paint matching of floors, furniture, walls, etc. She is very hands-on and her work with drills, grinders, circular saws, and other tools make Julia a great garage organizer.
Owning her own business enhanced and developed her project management skills, understanding of current trends, ability to stage a variety of spaces, confidence with tools, and finding solutions quickly and efficiently. A gift to see beyond the current situation and focus on what "will be" is what makes Julia a natural at organization. She excels in managing complex organizing jobs, leading groups of subcontractors, and turning trash into treasures when repurposing items in a client’s home.
Married since 1989 and raising 3 children, Julia enjoys leading Bible studies, gardening, biking, animals, family, and friends, and most of all, being a grandmother to her grandson.
