The majority of Julie's Junior career was under the instruction of Bob Buxton of Edmond, OK. As a junior rider, Julie won year end titles in Children's Hunter, 13 & Under Equitation, 14-17 Equitation, and Junior Hunter. Julie has schooled with clinicians Holly Hugo Vidal and Ronnie Mutch.
Continuning her love of the sport, Julie turned pro in 1994 when she and her husband Michael married and began training together. Over the years, they have trained many talented riders, acquiring multiple year end championships in numerous hunter and jumper divisions including OHJA Schooling Rider of the Year in 4 of the last 7 years and the Jessie Turner Memorial Award (high point junior rider) the last 2 years. In 2016 Julie's own horse, Quiet Prospector, won the TB Horse of the Year (as a 4 year old).
