Julia met Maya, the founder, and president of Maya's Hope, at a business networking event in 2014. After learning about the incredible mission of the charity, she offered her connections to help with the gala. Julia has been sponsoring a child in the Philippines ever since. The following year, Maya asked Julia to be a gala chair, and she has been happy to fill that position for the past five years. Julia joined the board in January 2019 as she's passionate about helping children in Ukraine and the Philippines and seeing the real impact the charity has brought to children in need. She is excited about Maya's Hope's growth and is always thinking of new ideas to help the organization.
