Everyone give a warm welcome to one of our newest employees, Julia L.! She is a buyer from our State College location and a Penn State junior majoring in Biobehavioral Health (BBH) and double minoring in Nutritional Sciences and Biology (Try saying that five times fast). She wants to become a registered dietitian and give Dr. Oz a run for his money (Or out of business – whichever comes first). Julia also wants us to let the world know that she is the world’s only extreme ukulele player, won a spelling bee in 8th grade and a geography quizzathon in 7th.
The styling aspect of her job is one of the two things she is fond of most. Julia enjoys redressing the mannequins and displays on our dressing room doors (when she’s feeling inspired) and putting together outfits that she herself may one day wear when she’s on talk shows promoting her healthy dieting books and other research. Her second favorite thing about the Attic is getting to look at (and first dibs) on all of the vintage jewelry that customers bring in. Julia comments that the vintage pieces are much more timeless than what you see the kids wearing nowadays, they’re unique and wearable (And to top things off, no one else has it!)
Julia has been a very welcomed new addition to our Attic family. She has learned quickly and brings a certain level of fun that was needed to our company. If you see her in the store, don’t be afraid to say “Hi!” … Though, if you get an awkward look from her, it’s probably the fact you know her name and you’re more than likely a complete stranger.
