In college Julia was engaged with NYU’s premier sketch comedy group HammerkatzNYU, which was founded by the members of the sketch group Derrick. In addition to being a writer and performer for HammerkatzNYU, she also acted as treasurer. She has performed with them at many comedy festivals, such as the Skidmore College Comedy Festival and the George Washington University Slate College Comedy Festival.
Julia has produced and location managed many short films and sketches, including ones by the sketch groups Unlikely Allies and Political Subversities. She also assisted in the production of a new video by viral video star Rachel Bloom, the Hugo Award-nominated writer and star of F*ck Me, Ray Bradbury (NSFW).

As a comedian and writer, she has performed at illustrious comedy theaters like the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater (where she is also a student) and the People’s Improv Theater in New York. You can watch her doing weird stuff in Internet videos by Gavin McInnes [Are Women As Horny As Men? (NSFW)] and CollegeHumor, among many others. She completed her first voiceover work on the Nicktoons show Three Delivery, performing in two different episodes. She is one of the youngest people to have ever been paid for jokes used by The Onion (at age 18).
Julia was originally Patrick Swayze’s first choice to play “Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman” in Dirty Dancing, but she couldn’t, as she would not be born for another two years. She has seen every episode of Welcome Back, Kotter for some reason.
