In 2015 she became certified as a Complete Decongestive therapist in Manual Lymphatic Drainage with the Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy. Through the Healwell organization she continued her studies and received her certification in Oncology, and Scar Tissue Mobilization. During her Oncology studies, Julie was accepted into a stewardship program with Healwell, at the Virginia Hospital Center. This hospital-based massage program gave her a greater depth and appreciation working within the clinical environment.
