Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.


Julia is a board certified women’s health care Nurse Practitioner who trained at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Before pursuing her MSN, Julia was a Registered Nurse working in labor and delivery, as well as mother/baby care.

Julia’s clinical interests include gynecology and family planning, as well as preconception and post-pregnancy care. She is honored to provide compassionate, evidence based health care to women during all stages of life, with particular appreciation of the menopausal transition. Julia also provides care in our Menopause and Sexual Medicine program.

Through shared decision making and health promotion, Julia encourages patients to have an active voice in their health care needs and goals. She cares for women at both OHSU Hillsboro Medical Center and the OHSU Center for Women’s Health.
