Julia Bennett is the founder of J.B. Strategic Communications, a communications consulting firm based in Southern California, and is the soon-to-be stepmother of two awesome and rowdy teenage boys. Her portfolio includes consulting and clinical advisory work with Navy Medicine’s Perinatal Advisory Board, the USDA, and a prior career in journalism spanning coast to coast, from CBS in Boston, to California, to ABC-7 in Washington, D.C. When she’s not writing and creating, she commits brazen acts of cooking, and is grateful for those who eat her frequent attempts. She holds a B.A. in journalism from Northeastern University and an M.P.P. in Health Policy and International Health Policy & Development from Georgetown University.
