Julie was born in Benton Ridge, Ohio, but has lived in Findlay for 19 years. She became a childcare provider when she was a young mother herself and found that her own childcare needs weren’t met. She began the process to become certified and now provides care for both first and second shift parents. She quickly realized how much she loved the children in her care and the ability to be home with her own kids, a 15 year old son, and two daughters, ages 12 and 10. Julie especially likes meeting grown children in Findlay whom she cared
for years ago. “They still get a big smile on their face when they see me,” she said.
