Julie has a long list of accomplishments; Veteran, Mom, Wife, Author, Hunter, Pro Shooter, TV personality, Captain of the Smith & Wesson shooting team, and IPSC World Champion Ladies Classic Division (probably the nicest shooter on the circuit), and newly elected member of the NRA Board of Directors!
I have been honored to meet Julie on several occasions and follow her on FaceBook, Twitter, www.juliegolob.com, and YouTube, JulieG.TV. If this woman has the ability to frown, I’ve never seen it. She is upbeat, generous of spirit and inspiring. I learn so much watching her, but never feel like I’m being taught. She is approachable, funny and most importantly genuine.
Julie is truly an inspiration for girls and women everywhere. We’ll probably never rise to her level, but she never makes you feel that way. This is someone I would love to just sit down for coffee with, not that she has time between her competition schedule, writing, blogging, appearances and spending time with two adorable little ones, teaching them early about gun safety. It isn’t possible to watch Julie’s vlog and not smile.
Julie also has a new book to help teach children about gun safety. It is available on Amazon and had been very well received. This is a great resource for parents and teachers. I believe all children should have some knowledge of firearms safety, even if you don’t have them in your home. Safety and knowledge are the most important gift we can give our kids.
