A native of Sacramento, California, Julie’s career has taken her from the west to the east coast of the United States.
She began her broadcasting career as a traffic, feature, and weather reporter in 2003 for KXTV, the ABC affiliate in her hometown. Julie quickly became interested in focusing on meteorology and the impact weather has throughout the U.S.
After Sacramento, she moved to KPHO, the CBS affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona, as the weather and traffic anchor. As an integral part of the CBS Storm Team in Phoenix, Julie covered the Pacific hurricane seasons, including monsoons and haboobs (known as Arizonian Dust Storms).
From there, Julie moved to WSVN in Miami where she became South Florida’s #1 morning meteorologist. After 6 years at WSVN, Julie left to join WPLG in 2012. Her addition to WPLG has more than doubled the stations morning viewership. Julie has also been featured over a dozen times on Good Morning America and ABC’s World News.
Julie obtained her degree as a Broadcast Certified Meteorologist from Mississippi State University. She also holds the American Meteorological Society (AMS) seal of approval for television weather casting, and has been a member of the National Weather Association (NWA) since 2006.
When Julie is not delivering the South Florida or National forecast, she and her husband David enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors with Stoli, their Black Labrador Retriever. They are also owners of RAD Racing, a Thoroughbred Horse Racing Stable with home base at Gulfstream Park.
