Julie has lived in the Tebay area all her life and attended Tebay Primary School herself, before going on to Kirkby Stephen Grammar School. Her A Levels in chemistry and biology gave her a love of science which has led to her current job working as a Q.A. Technician in the laboratory at Princes Ltd.
Julie has three children, two of which attend Tebay Primary School and one at secondary school. She believes that the school is a very important part of the community and is passionate about helping the school to grow and offer the best possible education and experiences for all the children in the village.
