Julie’s favorite saying is: “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.” It is debatable who first said this, but Ben Franklin most frequently receives credit for it. The reason she likes this quote is that it fits so many situations in life, but it specifically became a favorite after working in the substance abuse field for more than 12 years.
Julie is originally from Iowa but moved to Missouri in 2015. She moved south due to family, weather, and beautiful motorcycle riding.
