Julia Barela

Growing up in Jacksonville, Florida since she was seven, her dream was always to attend the University of Florida and be a gator. Now at the age of 21, she is on the verge of graduating on May 2015 with a Bachelor's in Anthropology and minor in Entrepreneurship. Her adventurous spirit has led her to do the craziest of acts from zip lining the canyons to swimming with manta rays in the Bahamas.

Julia is no stranger to traveling, especially since she's traveled and lived in four different countries. So when it came time to move to Gainesville, Florida to attend school, Julia was no stranger to change. But what she didn't expect was to constantly move year to year and what made it more difficult was having to move while having her beautiful Great Pyrenees. Having a dog as a student was hard enough but trying to find a community that allowed pets was challenging. To Julia her dog wasn't just a pet, but her companion and best friend so it was at the upmost importance to find a community that would also house her dog.

With Julia's experience and tribulations, she is excited to share her expertise in helping others find their homes to accommodate their needs. Making it easier and more enjoyable process for others.
