Julie began her music career at the age of 12 years old singing in the church choir. Her mother encouraged this by starting her in voice lessons with one Sister Celina of St. Joseph’s Convent in Red Deer, Alberta. Sister Celina was one very strict, crabby, demanding, but lovable nun. From there, she went on to study with several well respected vocal teachers in her town and started to compete in the Kiwanis Music Festival where she won several top honors.
