Few people have the privilege of having two "first day" on the job.

We're so glad to have Julia back after a break. Now she's in a completely new role in a way that directly supports you, our community! Let's dive in!

Hey Julia! What do you wish we knew about your job?

With my job as the Partnership Director, I get to interact with a lot of people who want to do good, encourage and be encouraged, and make a difference. One aspect that I love about my job is that through partnering with people, double the impact is made. Along with MudLOVE’s giving model of providing a week of clean water with every purchase through the work of Water for Good, I also get to help people set up fundraisers that allow even MORE good to be done.

I’ve helped set up fundraisers for all kinds of things - school trips, memorial funds, summer camp costs for students, sports teams, adoptions, medical expenses, and the list goes on! It’s double the impact when I get the chance to partner with someone to set up a fundraiser.

If you could describe your MudLOVE superpower, what would it be?

Hmm I think my MudLOVE superpower would probably be hand model extraordinaire. ;) I'll never forget the day I was asked to go get my nails done because I had nice hands and they wanted to take pictures of them with new products! Haha! That was the first time I'd ever done something like that! 

What's that *one* thing you're really into right now?

This isn't a "right now" kind of thing, but rather the one thing I've been really into since about 2018 - Korean dramas (Kdrama for short). They are slow, beautiful, cheesy, love stories with lots of dynamic main couple characters, CEOs, beautifully colored scenes, fun friend groups, and dramatic pauses and I can't get enough of them. Crash Landing On You is my recommendation if you're curious. Let me know what you think. ;) 

What's your favorite MudLOVE product?

I think the original bracelets are a staple of the brand, but I've been loving all of our new Viona additions! The solid colors and beaded Vionas feel like the perfect addition to the original bracelet, but I also prefer to wear them by themselves. 

It's almost Father's Day; what are you getting your Dad? 

My dad is a big MudLOVE fan and likes to wear a bracelet every now and then or keep one in his car as a good reminder. He also has his fair share of MudLOVE mugs! This year, I'm getting him a Yeti travel mug so he can continue his coffee drinking after he leaves the house. :)

Thanks for sharing more about your role, Julia! We're so thankful to have you on the team and for the way you help our community! Read our previous MudFOLK, Ben, here.
