Julz grew up on a farm in Treherne, Manitoba (a town of 800 people). This is where her love for animals was formed. 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.
Julz is very well travelled and is an experienced Trekker (she has even hiked to base camp 1 of Mount Everest!). She is currently studying to attain her Medical Laboratory Assistant Certificate through Thompson Rivers University. When not working or studying, she enjoys spending time with her boyfriend Kyle, her golden retriever Brodie, and her tabby Loot.
