Julia is dedicated to connecting communities to each other and their changing environment. She founded her award-winning climate change tech company after over a decade of reporting natural disasters and climate change across the globe and in her own backyard on the Gulf Coast. Today, it is almost impossible to separate our natural, built, and social environments. Weather and climate affect the type of infrastructure we build and how we live, work, and play in our communities. While our social environment determines how those impacts are experienced, it also determines which voices are heard from when it comes to solving problems. Julia is connecting the stories to the data and producing unprecedented information related to climate change for use across numerous industries and communities.
