Hi! I’m Julie, and A Different Kind of Crazy is what my life has become since II became a working mother of three.
A Little Bit About Me
I was born and raised in Adams, Massachusetts, a beautiful small town in the Western part of the state. I think being raised a Yankee is a big part of who I am, and I think it is why I tend to be impatient, loud, arrogant, and demanding!
I graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in public relations and a minor in English. After we broke the snow record in Syracuse during my senior year (yes, 151 inches of snow), I moved to San Antonio, Texas, to live with my Aunt and Uncle, and the rest is history. I met my husband here and birthed my children here, so I guess I am here to stay, and according to Wikipedia, that makes me a Damn Yankee!
I’ve always loved to write thanks to my Aunt Berkie, who was an English teacher and a talented writer who encouraged me to explore my writing abilities. I am fortunate that I get to write or edit almost every day at work – I am the Vice President of Marketing for a financial services company headquartered here in San Antonio.
In my free time, I like to watch basketball (Go Spurs), stalk people on Facebook, drink wine, and read (mostly magazines, because I don’t have the patience for books). I am a retired runner, thanks to a broken sesamoid, who actually likes to walk much more than run. I also like to over commit myself by doing things like serving on three non-profit boards, teaching faith formation, being a cookie mom, helping to lead a girl scout troop, and organizing fundraisers.
All of this would be fine if I didn’t work full time and have three children. Oh, and then there is that Type-A personality!
