Julie has been teaching English as a Second Language for three years. Her students come from primarily Korea, China, Mongolia and Russia. She is an active bridge player (having played with the same group of women for the last 12 years). She and her husband Bruce enjoy social gambling (“we are always looking for penny-poker games”) and travelling. She enjoys reading, cooking, quilting, working with fused glass, entertaining, being politically active and living also in Steamboat Springs “because I love every single season that we have here in Colorado, especially when I am up in the mountains.”
Released for 2016 National Nurses Week, “The Joy of Nursing: Reclaiming Our Nobility” reveals Juliana Adams’ journey from being a young, excited girl just starting out in her career to a woman feeling challenged to discover a deeper meaning of what being a nurse has embodied for centuries. Adams’ book is more than a memoir; it is the candid reflection of the search for what ultimately led her to the concept of nobility.
