Meet Julie

Julie is passionate about traveling and sharing her experiences using points and miles to travel more often, and sometimes in greater luxury, than would otherwise be attainable. She is especially interested in teaching others how to earn points strategically and redeem points for good value.

Julie has varied travel interests including: stunning beaches, charming towns and countryside destinations, and vibrant cities around the world. She enjoys independent travel and with increased location flexibility in recent years, she is reexamining the balance between quick trips and longer ones.

As a frequent solo traveler, Julie views travel as a way of challenging herself and achieving personal growth.

Julie has an MBA in finance. She has been a Destination Expert on TripAdvisor for many years.
