GoGirlfriend’s founder, Julia Rosien

Julia RosienJulia RosienOur founder, Julia Rosien, has been getting on and off planes for most of her career and lives her passion for travel. She began her travel writing apprenticeship as a child. Her fondest memories involve stale cheesies, flat orange pop and squabbling with her brothers in the backseat of a station wagon. Senior editor of a national pregnancy magazine and correspondent for newspapers like the Boston Globe, Chicago Sun-Times and The Christian Science Monitor, Julia has visited almost every Canadian province and American state. She's as comfortable diving into Watsu therapy as she is revving her ATV for mucky trek through the Northern Ontario or soaring above the Rio Grande in a hot air balloon.

While Julia leaves extreme adventuring to her intrepid travel cohorts, she'll do just about anything to experience a story for her readers. Especially when she's rewarded with a spa treatment at the end of the trek.

Angelo Surmelis and JuliaAngelo Surmelis and JuliaWhen Julia's not jetting her way to her next great adventure, she's a social media strategist for SocialNorth.com. She’s the 2012 President of WithIt and organizer and co-founder and master of ceremonies for Canada’s first 140 Conference. She’s also a presenter at both Vegas and High Point markets, Impact99, Tweetstock.ca, Women in Biz Conference and 140conf NYC to name just a few. Not surprisingly, she’s been named one of the most influential women in social media and was a nominee for the Roger’s 2011 Women of the Year celebration in Waterloo Region.
