Julie grew up in Augusta, Georgia. She received a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia State University in 2004 and a Master’s degree as a Reading Specialist from Radford University in 2010. She previously worked as a classroom teacher and reading specialist in the area. She is thankful for the opportunity to unite her passion for children and her passion for Jesus by serving at Northstar! It is her hope every child that walks into Northstar feels the love of Jesus and wants to know more about Him.

Julie and her husband Charlie (who blessed her with the unforgettable name, Julie Jewell) welcomed their daughter, Claire to the world in August of 2012. Claire reminds them daily of God’s love and sense of humor. Julie enjoys baking, reading, running and Starbucks.
