About the Family Ties Podcast

about the family ties podcast

The Family Ties Podcast is a fresh and new series created and curated by two sisters on opposite sides of the United States who want to share their journey of staying connected through the weekly discussion of topics that both affect and inspire them. These topics range from Arts and Entertainment, Inspirational Women and Role Models, Science, Global Issues, Psychology, Life Experiences, Pet Peeves, etc. Distance may keep them apart, but Family Ties creates the perfect backdrop to remain connected, challenged, and always learning.

Meet Julia

Location: Jacksonville, FL

Age: 27

Zodiac Sign: Capricorn

Work: Entrepreneur

Julia spent most of her youth being home-schooled alongside her 5 siblings and stifled by religious influence in small town Hodgenville, Kentucky. Eager to be independent, she moved out just before turning 18, working random jobs while coming face to face with sexism, rampant gossip, and white male dominance. Her experiences growing up and navigating life made her determined to learn, grow, create, and strive to become a positive and empowering female force.
