At the age of 20 Julz moved to Thailand and volunteered with "Rescue Paws," a spay and neuter clinic that focused on improving the quality of life for the local animals. Afterwards she moved to the West Coast and worked in emergency medicine in Victoria and has made an official career of working with animals.
