Julia is a public school teacher, wife, and mother of two children who believes deeply in educational equity, civil and human rights, and empowering all members of society. She began her teaching career in Moreno Valley as a 7th grade English and Language Arts teacher. She then moved on to Boys Republic, a school for incarcerated young men, where she taught reading intervention and the GED program. She has always worked in low-income, high-risk schools because she believes that education is the great equalizer. She understands the importance of health care, after having lost her father 17 years ago to cancer and she believes that health care should be treated as a right, not a privilege.
