As part of the Brookside Optometric Group family for 33 years, Julie plays an important role as the frame inventory control specialist and manages our extensive frame inventory. During a typical day, she orders frames for patients and the frame room, receives and tags frames, and meets with frame sales reps to select the latest styles for the practice.
Julie enjoys the great friends and relationships she has made throughout the years and is very happy to be part of the Brookside family. One highlight for her are the wonderful patients she has met over time.
When Julie first started working at Brookside, she helped patients select frames and developed relationships with many of them as they returned every year for new glasses. One patient would generously bring in homemade kimchi to share; another special couple would trade dog stories with Julie, and even brought in a photo of their dog’s recent birthday party!
Born and raised in Stockton, Julie graduated from Edison High School and attended San Joaquin Delta College. Julie and her husband Peter make their home in Stockton along with Maui, their rescue Chow mix. The couple has a heart for animal adoption and often helps transport dogs from the City of Stockton Animal Shelter to Chows Plus Rescue in Sacramento, where the dogs are matched with loving homes.
Outside of the office, she enjoys spending time with her family and getting together with them as often as possible. Julie and Peter are diehard Sacramento Kings fans and love going to basketball games, walking their dog, and traveling together, especially to Maui. They also enjoy concerts, musicals, movies, and spending time with friends.
