Prior to joining Bren, Julia served as Director of Operations for Ventura Brush Goats, a livestock business that uses rotational grazing of sheep and goats for fire fuel mitigation and habitat restoration. She has worked with organizations such as the Ventura County Resource Conservation District, Ojai Valley Land Conservancy, and countless private land holding entities on ground breaking land regeneration projects using traditional pastoral techniques.

Julia is passionate about finding innovative ways of mitigating damage to communities and ecosystems following severe weather events brought on by a changing climate.
