Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Julianne (known around the office as Jules) left the Outback and her Vegemite to finish her legal studies in New Brunswick. Don’t let her bright smile fool you: like most native Australian species, Jules is lethal.

One of eight siblings, Jules has mastered the art of negotiation. She uses this skill when handling many different types of insurance claims, including fraud, coverage, and subrogation. She can also be found playing ultimate Frisbee, baking cupcakes, and making preserves. But she will not throw a shrimp on the Barbie.
