Her love for traveling and the marine industry blossomed when she circumnavigated the globe onboard Semester at Sea in 2009. After a successful career as an Account Manager at a full-service digital agency in Philadelphia, she eventually made her way to Fort Lauderdale, Florida working for the well-known superyacht magazine, Boat International.
With travel being one of her many passions, Julia joined GMT as their Marketing Manager in 2018, bringing expertise in both the yachting sector and the digital world we now live in.
