Meet Julia Norek

Let’s start by getting to know you a little better. Tell us about yourself.

I grew up in Jamison, Pennsylvania with two younger siblings and a dog. I went to college at the University of Georgia and graduated in 2018. I double-majored in Marketing at the business school and PR at the communications school. I played club lacrosse all 4 years. After college, I traveled and worked for about two years before ending up in Denver working full-time in Marketing.

What’s something you love to do?

I coach youth lacrosse and occasionally play in an adult league. I also play in a variety of recreational sports leagues in Denver with friends. I love a good park day or grabbing lunch or a drink with friends. I love reading, baking, pilates; and hiking in the fall and summer and snowboarding in the winter. And trying new things!
