While in Germany, Julia began her Civil Service career. Julia retired from Civil Service as a Program analyst after 32 dedicated years. 

 While traveling was her love it was not her only passion, you would be hard pressed not to find her in front of the tv on a Saturday during college football season rooting for The University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE) and on Sunday rooting for the Dallas Cowboys.
