"The journey in between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place." ~ Barbara DeAngelis

Julie Lockhart loves an adventure, especially in wild places. She spent most of her career in academics, where she published extensively in peer-reviewed journals, such as Critical Issues in Environmental Taxation; and Advances in Accounting Education. During the last years of her career, she led a grief support nonprofit, where she discovered the beauty and depth of personal stories, sharing her own experience as well as that of others to help grieving people feel less alone. From that she has embraced a memoir style in writing about her adventures in nature and life, sharing vivid details and insights that come from her experiences. Her essays have been published in the Medford MailTribune, the Ashland Daily Tidings, and the journal of Wild Culture. Julie placed in the top ten for Q1 2022 Women on Writing Creative Nonfiction Essay Contest for her story, “Nature’s Sanity.” Born in the Chicago area, Julie has lived, worked and played in the Pacific Northwest since 1982. She recently moved to Port Townsend, WA.
