About the Author


Julie grew up in Des Moines, Iowa and received her BA in Journalism from the University of Iowa.   She is currently a freelance writer, blogger and photographer: contributing regularly to several local publications.  She also contributes regularly to two blogs she established.  “Outlooks and Inspirations”  (found at julieetta1982.blogspot.com) is a blog covering a diversity of topics including feminism today, health and wellness issues for women and the hobbies of scrapbooking/journaling. This particular blog (americantrekkerblog.com) is devoted to travel features and tips for traveling in America. With such a love for the beauty of our National Parks, Julie published a book about her trips to many of them.
