She graduated from Kettle Moraine High School and then attended Brigham Young University (BYU), where he studied Business.
However, when Julie was 19, she read a story in her school newspaper that MTV was casting for a New Orleans season of The Real World.

THE REAL WORLD
“When I went to L.A., it was just life-changing. I got out there, and I saw a whole new world that I’ve never seen before. I met some really cool people, and I realized if this experience could be this cool in a couple of days, imagine four months in a new place with new people,” she told Deseret News.
“I just wanted to meet new people, see new things, see what I wasn’t seeing in Provo. I saw so much. I learned so much in four months that I’ve never even known about,” Julie continued.
The casting directors of the show wanted a “faithful Mormon,” and decided to go with Julie.
After being cast on the show, her college dropped her in 2000 for honor code breaches relating to her participation in the program, which prohibits unmarried students from living in the same house with unrelated people of the opposite sex.
BYU gave her six days to appeal their ruling after they accused her of having sexual relations with her male housemates.
Because she was busy filming spinoff shows, Julie never filed an appeal and later shared on the show that she felt no respect for the school.

Julie continues to be a property manager, mother of three, wife, and an Atheist.
However, she did get back into reality TV.
This month, The Real World Homecoming: New Orleans aired on Paramount+, where Julie reunited with her old castmates.
Although she thought it would be really fun to dive back into the MTV world, she was very nervous.
In the first episode of the season, Julie mentioned how she had a falling out with two of her castmates, Melissa and Danny, after the original show in 2000.
She was seen running into Danny’s arm and apologizing.
They were supposed to go on speaking tours after the show was over.
Julie did, with Melissa and Danny, but apparently she or one of her reps started rumors about the other two.
Danny told her they’ll talk about it more while Melissa gave an icy hi.
