Partner | Architect


M. Arch, Tulane University
Joined studioWTA in 2005

Julie has designed and managed several award-winning projects that span a variety of scales and projects types. She enjoys manipulating project constraints into creative design opportunities and excels at utilizing program, site, budget, and code limitations to create compelling architecture that is both functional and beautiful. Julie finds her work particularly gratifying when clients recognize and appreciate architecture built form and space making on a deeper, artistic level.

Julie earned her Masters of Architecture from Tulane University where she was awarded the prestigious John W. Lawrence Memorial Medal for Design Excellence in recognition of her outstanding work in design and academics. Tulane also granted Julie The John W. Lawrence Travel Research Fellowship, which enabled her to travel to the Netherlands to study the country’s contemporary architecture and urban landscapes. When Hurricane Katrina coincided with her final year, rather than returning to her hometown of Philadelphia, Julie committed to helping rebuild New Orleans. Since then, her New Orleans roots have grown deep personally and professionally.

In 2016 Julie became partner at studioWTA and was named “Master Of Architecture” by New Orleans Homes + Lifestyles Magazine. She became a licensed Architect in 2010 and has been a LEED accredited professional since 2007. In her free time Julie enjoys exploring her vibrant city – or other cities – with her husband and two children.
