Anesthesiologist, Hair Stylist, and Mother in Sacramento, California
Hello, I’m Julia Wilkes. I am an anesthesiologist living in Sacramento, California. I play soccer at least three times a week, either with friends or on my competitive coed team. I love to travel with my husband and my three kids. I have been to 100/ 195 countries and all 50 states in the U.S. I also love cooking and baking with my family. I make it a priority every night that we will cook or bake something new. That priority is sometimes a little hard to reach, but we do our best. Last but not least, I am a huge animal lover. We currently have three dogs, two cats, and a bird. They somehow all get along, which is the funny part.
I currently work at Kaiser in Sacramento. At work, I spend half of my day in the operating room and the other half meeting patients that will undergo surgery soon. I love my job because it involves self-motivation, which I have a lot of. I went to at least 8 years of schooling after high school, and appreciate every bit of it. I am so blessed to have a mom and dad that supported me going to school and helped me be the person I am today.
I live by the quote, "She believed she could, so she did." I love this quote because it means that if you actually put your mind to something and put all your efforts into it, you will accomplish anything.
