Who Am I?

In high school, Julia excelled in a number of team sports, including basketball, rugby, volleyball, and football. In University, Julia tried her hand at endurance sports, and completed several sprint and Olympic distance triathlons. She was introduced to Olympic Weightlifting in 2013 when she joined JustLift. Since then, she has grown increasingly passionate about the sport, evidenced by her commitment to training and coaching. Julia has qualified for the 2015 Ontario Provincial Championships and 2015 Canadian National Championships. Julia completed the NCCP Weightlifting Competition Introduction in June 2014, and has since contributed greatly as a coach.

Julia is completing a PhD in Clinical Psychology, an endeavor which contributes to her instinctive ability to communicate well with athletes of all levels. Julia is an excellent motivator and is creative in tailoring her coaching to the individual’s needs.
