Giulia graduated from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and minor in Psychology. She spent the summer working at a kids’ mountain camp in Colorado as well as traveling in Europe, made her way back home, and soon found the Little School and immediately fell in love with the school’s approaches and values concerning early child care and education. Giulia has worked with children of all ages in an array of settings since high school. She has worked before and after school programs, one-on-one with special needs clients, and at various camps. She held internships at different preschools and with children with Autism developing personalized physical education plans. She also volunteered two summers for a muscular dystrophy camp and a therapeutic horseback riding program, as well as earned her clinical hours at a pediatric occupational therapy clinic in Wilmington. Giulia values every experience she has had with children and incorporates her knowledge of child psychology, physiology, and the methodologies surrounding occupational therapy every day at TLS. She has been passionate about working with young children and finding new ways to provide them the support and tools they need to gain confidence, independence, and a passion for learning about anything and everything that sparks their interest. Giulia hopes every child will leave her care with a love of play, books, nature, and every creature in it, especially themselves.
