While at the ADL, Julia was tasked with setting up a historic conference between Bronx Hispanic religious and political figures and Bronx Jewish leaders to foster a dialogue on a variety of issues between the two communities.

     Julia attended Cornell Law School, receiving her J.D. in 2010.

Julia works with numerous mediators and private judges, as well as financial and mental health experts, with whom she consults whenever warranted.
