Originally from Rochester, NY Julie first got interested in food when her mom taught cooking classes at her house growing up. The love of family dinners and spending so much time in the kitchen led her to Johnson and Wales in Charlotte in 2004. Julie earned a culinary degree and a bachelors in food and beverage management. After graduation she spent 6 years working back of house before realizing her true passion was in the front working with the guests. Upon moving to Charleston in 2010 she ended up at Charleston Grill and worked her way up to dining room manager. In 2017 Julie moved to Colorado and worked for restaurants in Boulder and Denver. She moved back to Charleston in 2020 with her fiancé Anthony. Julie joined the EOBC team in October 2020, her favorite beer so far is the Comfy Armchair.
Located in the Pacific Box & Crate development at 1505 King Street, Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. is less than a mile from Edmund’s Oast restaurant and Edmund’s Oast Exchange.
