Julia graduated from Asbury University in 2002 with a degree in sociology, and received her M.Div. in December 2007 from Asbury Theological Seminary. After college, she served as a youth minister in Mississippi. Julia continued to work with Asbury University students as an intern for Campus Ministries, mentoring several women students and helping lead Katrina Relief trips to Pass Christian, Mississippi.
While a student, Julia loved living in the residence hall and saw the RD role as so important. She finds it to be incredibly valuable to have other adults serve as mentors in our lives, and wants to be one of those people for students at Asbury.
Julia is happily married to Josh, also a graduate of Asbury Theological Seminary. They love living together in Glide-Crawford and welcomed their first child, Joshua Fitzhugh, in March of 2010.
