I bring UNIQUE and FUN programs to libraries and schools all across our great state of Arizona. I really do!"
      Performing at School and Library shows is one of Julie's favorite things to do. She has a series of one of a kind informative presentations geared for preschools, K - 5th grades and 6th - 12th grade groups to choose from.
