Julie was born and raised in Layton, Utah. Julie moved to Smiths Ferry when her family purchased Cougar Mountain Lodge and worked there for nearly 20 years cooking. Now leased out to other family members, Julie then worked at The Ashley Inn and Valley County Jail. Julie has 3 children and 2 grandsons. When not working her activities are usually outside: gardening, hiking, photography, camping and a small flock of chickens keep me busy. For Julie, it’s a pleasure to cook homemade dinners that remind these amazing students of home.
