About Julie

I was born in North Devon in the south west of England and grew up with my parents and two younger brothers. As children growing up, we developed a passion for all things beachy.

Beach huts and rock pooling with our Grandparents punctuated those long, hot summer holidays and now, as adults, we all continue to be drawn to the beautiful British coastline.

I left Devon in 1988 and moved to North Yorkshire to start my nurse training. After completing my nurse training I married my now husband of 25 years and had two gorgeous sons. My nursing career has been varied from nursing in a city hospital to working as a Practice Nurse.

We now live in Northumberland and visits to the coast and beach combing for sea glass is just as enjoyable for me now as it was as a child growing up in Devon.
