Julie is a board-certified family nurse practitioner with Mission Pediatrics, Inc. She received her Masters Degree and Family Nurse Practitioner training from Azusa Pacific University in 2018. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Emory University. Julie has worked in psychiatry, critical care, the emergency department and now pediatrics. Receiving her externship training at Mission Pediatrics, we knew immediately that she embodied the spirit of quality and compassion that makes Mission Pediatrics so uniquely different. She is an Atlanta native and has enjoyed living in sunny California for the last several years. By the way, our silliness team will sometimes insert something irrelevant into this bio just to keep you guessing…did you know that Shaggy from Scooby Doo has a real name? Norville Rogers…Anywho, back to Julie…Julie developed her love for pediatric patients while working in the pediatric emergency department. In her free-time Julie enjoys doing just about anything outdoors. She is very artistic and played a pivotal role in setting up the décor in the Redlands Victorian office and painting the mural in our San Bernardino Haleakalā Office in addition to serving as an actor in many of our film productions. As a child Julie loved playing pretend games (she was all about Barbies) and watching Disney princess movies over and over again (definitely not annoying to everyone around her). Julie strives to create a positive patient and family-centered experience with a focus on wellness, prevention and encouraging the development of healthy behaviors. Julie is interested in languages and can speak Gibberish almost fluently. She is one of our telemedicine gurus and works primarily remotely. Julie is married and has one son and 2 fur-babies named Zoe and Scooby (…Norville?). RuhRoh.
