Interview with Julia
Tell us about yourself
I am an Arizona native and the only girl in a family full of amazing brothers. I would describe myself as an old soul at heart. I enjoy sitting down to watch a good classic movie and getting to sleep before 9 pm haha. My most favorite thing in the world is to laugh. It’s good for the soul! If you have a favorite joke, please share it with me!
Why did you become a Speech Language Pathologist?
I’ve always loved working with children of all ages. I was inspired to become a speech-language pathologist while working as a respite care provider for young children during my high school/early college days. I had the opportunity to sit in on speech therapy sessions every week and see the amazing things that the speech therapist was able to do. I immediately applied for classes and the rest is history!
Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being Kind?
My hope is that they nominated me because they can feel that I truly care about each one of them and that they know my kindness comes from a genuine place. I am part of the most amazing TEAM around and I truly consider them to be my family.
What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?
I have the opportunity to work alongside the absolute best coworkers and we have the most wonderful clients and families that allow us to be part of their lives. TEAM 4 Kids is truly a special place and I feel blessed to be a part of it!
If you could recommend 1 method for spreading kindness, what would it be?
Don’t be afraid to approach someone and give them a compliment or brighten their day. You never know what someone may be going through or how hard their journey has been, a little kindness goes a long way!
