She was a graduate of Woodstown High School in New Jersey, then the University of Massachusetts (HomeEc), and later earned her Master's Degree from Villanova University(Psychology).

Julia raised her family in Woodstown, New Jersey with her first husband, Dr. Lawrence B. Qwen. There she pursued her life long love of training, raising horses, and teaching her children and others to ride and care for horses. Her 4-H Clubs were fun afternoons of sewing and/or riding! Julia became active with AA in 1974, and remained active with AA for the rest of her life.

In 1979 she moved to Landenberg PA with Art and realized her dream of living on a farm with her horses. She worked as an Addiction Counselor at Father Martin's Ashley Treatment Center in Maryland. In her 40s Julia took up skiing, and pursued this passion until she was 79!

Julia, Art, the horses, cats and dogs moved to Wellsboro, PA in 1989. She created a place where she could share her love of animals and outdoor activities with her kids and grandkids. Julia was active in the community, the First Presbyterian Church, and was a Century 21 Real Estate agent for many years.

In 2011 Julia moved to Phippsburg Maine to reside with Marcia and Roger Clark. She enjoyed volunteering at the Coastal Humane Society in Brunswick, and belonged to the Phippsburg Congregational Church, Popham Circle, Halcyon Knitting and Spinning groups and AA. She shared her passion for cats and other farm animals at the Clark's Fiddler's Reach Farm.
