Julia Acosta
Julia grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas, before earning a degree in public relations from Baylor University (sic em!). She and her husband, Herschel, met and married in Arkansas, and then the adventure really began. They moved five times (to four different states!) over seven years, before they finally found their way to Dallas in 2015. Julia is a stay-at-home mom to their three children (10, 7, and 4), but recently started working as a part-time preschool teacher. She loves traveling, cooking meals that only three members of her family will eat, and staying up way too late with a good book.
