They have five children, namely Scott, Alysa, Caitlin, Emily, and Jake. Julia has also been a licensed insurance agent for several years given her vast knowledge in the area. Julia has always been fascinated by the law and how everything works. She has fought her own battles including going after her ex-husband for child support he owes back and securing a double judgment against him. In 2011, she got into a car accident that everyone thought was minor, but it’s actually changed her whole life. Health problems occurred after that, which resulted in her not being able to work full-time since 2013. In order to continue doing what she loves, Julia established this company to help attorneys in Texas who cannot afford full-time assistance. She wants to provide legal assistance to attorneys who cannot afford the costs of hiring full-time employees, while still being home-based. Her goal is to utilize her legal knowledge and expertise to assignments she is given as if they were her own cases.

My work is primarily made up of cartoons and my style of cartooning could be seen as a combination of American Cartooning with a dash of Anime Influence. I'm very dedicated to making a cartoon show some day, but I just don't really know how to get there. I'm hoping that being on this site will help me get noticed.
