Julia is an “animal nut” who grew up with an assortment of pets including dogs, cats, hamsters, and parakeets—she even used to train and care for her neighbor’s dogs and make pets of bugs and worms from her yard! She began her veterinary career as an assistant in 1994 and by 1998 was lead technician, earning her animal science degree in 1999. In 2001, Julia left New Jersey for Atlanta and started working with Dr. Ahearn, becoming a registered veterinary technician in 2008. She is also certified in dog training and behavior.
