ABOUT JULIE & MIKE

How are you and your teammate most alike? We are both pretty strong minded and very passionate about life and our families journey.

How are you and your teammate most different? Julie is from a large family where many people were always around with big dinners and
holidays. Mike is from a small family where it was always quiet with plenty of time in solitude.

What do you like to do together? Travelling, trying new foods, hiking, cooking.

What is your most memorable moment together? The birth of our kids – nothing is more magically or special.

What is your funniest experience together? Likely our first date. Julie wore a beautiful white sweater and due to some poor timing on taking
a sip and accelerating from a stop light ended up wearing most of it. The chocolate milk phenomenon visits us every few years – sometimes accidentally………..
