  • Get to know Julie 

    I have always had many varied interests, beginning in college where I double-majored in History and English, and double-minored in Philosophy and Accounting because I “just couldn’t decide.” My love of research and analysis have served me well in history-related projects over the years, from researching family history, to Monclova, Ohio’s history, and most recently, the War of 1812 and The Battle of Fallen Timbers.  I am  directly involved with The Ohio State University’s Forensic Anthropology Team searching for the original location of Fort Jennings, a War of 1812 fort, and have authored three coloring and activity books for children for War of 1812 historical sites – Fort Jennings, Fort Meigs and The Battle of Lake Erie. 

    I have been very involved in Girl Scouts as a girl and a leader, and I still enjoy planning programs and camps for scouts. I also express my creative side as a kiln-formed glass artist as well as playing and performing music.
