I am Julie, a wife and mother who also happens to be a recovering alcoholic. I began this blog as a journal of my life in 2010, after facing my alcoholism and soon after being in a serious car accident prevented me from performing the role in my corporate position.
One day in February of 2010 something inside me changed, I finally had the courage to reach out for help and begin the journey to recovery from alcoholism. Little did I know how beautiful life really could be! This is what SoberJulie.com is all about, finding the joys in life while living straight up! This is a place for all people, not just those in recovery because really we’re all facing challenges and seeking a healthy, meaningful journey.
I live in Southern Ontario with my fantastic husband, two daughters and our dogs who are beloved members of our family.
I have been blessed to have watched SoberJulie.com grow and morph into what it is today, a source for humour, information, inspiration and at times innovation. Today Sober Julie focuses on Food, Travel, Family, Health and inspiration!
After facing her alcoholism and soon after being involved in a car accident Julie began writing at Sober Julie where you’ll find that this funky blogger takes the tired, unappetizing reputation about sobriety and turns it into a day at the circus.
Jam-packed with ideas for food & drink recipes, travel tips and reviews, real stories of recovery, tips for sobriety, reflections on life and tons of ideas for leading a better (more creative, more enjoyable) life.
Julie brings with her a strong background in business and knowledge of all things social media. As a speaker she has a fresh-voice which utilizes humour and relate-ability to bring forward her message. As a writer she bares herself, offering her experience, strength and hope to the reader which allows for true connections.
