Julia is a product manager for an international healthcare technology company in Silicon Valley, improving healthcare through digital solutions. She finally found a home here after having studied and worked in six countries on four continents (Canada, China, UK, Brazil, Germany and the US). Her background is in finance and engineering and she is a passionate life-long learner interested in technology, health, personal development, happiness, and habits.
She is also the Curator of the Palo Alto hub of Global Shapers, an initiative of the World Economic Forum, whose mission it is to address regional and global challenges. She is currently working with local businesses to create more sustainability and prevent waste through the implementation of circular economy principles.
In her spare time, Julia loves to be outdoors and bike, swim or hike. In 2019, she has raised money and awareness for climate action and safe biking by riding 260 Miles along the Californian coast and hiked up her first 14,000 ft mountain. More to come.
