As the morning producer for WLRN, Julia can make the perfect espresso while half asleep.
She was born and raised in Miami and graduated from Florida International University, where she was a multimedia reporter for the South Florida News Service.
Julia fell in love with public radio, interned with WLRN and then fell in love with Miami. She learns something new about Miami every day -- like who designed South Beach's pastel palette.
Julia now keeps FIU and WLRN connected as co-director of alumni relations for the university's chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
According to Julia, the only thing better than chocolate is great audio.
