I’m Julie Szpira, 33 years old and currently residing in Chicago. A love of math and science steered me toward an education in Biomedical Engineering, and a love of math and travel brought me to points and miles.
My “day job” allows flexible leave and the ability to work comp time. I have made it my mission to spend as much time as possible traveling, while still remaining gainfully employed. Points and miles have made it even tougher to stay put, because the cost of travel has been significantly reduced, which means I can travel A LOT more.
When I’m not working or traveling, I like running, trendy gin cocktails, yoga, skittles and volunteering with kids.
The most important thing in my life is Little Panda. He’s the perfect travel companion.
Cathay Pacific First Class ORD-HKG-SIN in November 2018. I had two caviar appetizers and happy danced in my seat for 15 hours.
