Julia A. Seymour grew up in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State. Although her first letter to the editor was published when she was 16, she didn’t decide to pursue journalism until her first journalism class at Corning Community College. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in communications studies: print journalism from Liberty University in 2005.
A trip to Washington, D.C. during her final year of college, inspired Julia to move to the nation’s capital after graduation. She spent nearly 14 years there using her journalism skills, including news and opinion writing, in the non-profit sector. She excelled there, quickly moving from staff writer, to assistant editor and analyst, and later to an assistant managing editor position.
Beginning in 2017, she discovered D.C.’s community of dedicated professional and hobbyist photographers who value community over competition, share knowledge and collaborate regularly. Already a landscape photographer, she began shooting portraits and was inspired to take her photography more seriously. You’ll find some of her photography on Instagram.
Drawn by the mountains and ready for new adventures personally and professionally, Julia moved to the Mile High City in July 2019. A few of her favorite things to do are hiking trails in Golden, taking photographs in Rocky Mountain National Park, and exploring Denver’s many food halls.
Her most recent full-time role was Director of Communications for Mountain States Legal Foundation. She still contributes regularly to Newsbusters and World Digital.
