Having taught high school science for 16 years, Julie has now turned to teaching a new topic - accessibility. After sustaining a spinal cord injury from a collision between a car and her bike in 2015, she is living life with paralysis and has the lived experience to truly understand what accessibility means.
Julie has been a consultant for various building projects in Huron County including Cowbell, Blyth Memorial Hall, Huron Christian School and the 2017 International Plowing Match. She is also overseeing the universal design construction of her new home. She is a member of the Huron County Accessibility Advisory Committee, represents the Rick Hansen Foundation as a Speaking Ambassador and brought StopGap to Huron County. Julie attended Vancouver Community College to become one of the first in Ontario to be a designated RHF Accessibility Certification Professional. She looks forward to helping people around the province learn how easy access can be.
