A graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine and of the Jackson Memorial Hospital/University of Miami Pediatric Residency Program, Julie developed an abiding interest in autism spectrum disorders when her daughter regressed into the world of autism at four years of age. She developed a similar interest in breast cancer when she developed it herself in 2009.
Using an integrative/functional medicine approach to these diseases, both mother and daughter have had dramatic recoveries. As a result of these successes, this approach has been implemented into her unique and diverse practice in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
Author of the books “Healing Our Autistic Children” (September 2009) and “Your Comprehensive Guide to Breast Cancer” (January 2012), and an international speaker on autism and related disorders, she has also developed a patented antioxidant formula for peri-vaccination and peri-oxidative stress use.
Julie has founded and is President of the HealthyUNow Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation dedicated to creating healthy living treatment and residential facilities for individuals and their families impacted by autism. These facilities, both virtual and physical, will integrate the local community with its residents.
In addition, Julie is actively involved in research, writing books, and raising two children with the help of a wonderfully supportive family.
