Julia got her start as a columnist at Georgetown University, writing a column for two years in the university's student newspaper. Her senior year, she signed a development deal with former David Letterman producer Robert Morton and Spelling Television to create a tv show based upon her columns. It languished in development hell for years.
In the midst of college, Julia worked on a high profile congressional campaign, later becoming a legislative correspondent and speechwriter in the DC office of a prominent Illinois Congressman during the 107th Congress. She also provided political commentary for Comcast TV during the 2004 election.
After graduating from Georgetown in 2004 with a spectacularly unprofitable degree in political science, Julia moved to New York with her small white shih-tzu, Lilly.
