With TEXAS coming to a close tonight (LAST SHOW🎉❤️) I cannot help to think when the next time I will be brought to “places” across the stage on a horse and buggie surrounded by the second largest canyon in the world! All good things must unfortunately come to and end, but it has been one heck of a summer performing my face off and meeting new faces who share the same love. Much love to the cast & crew! I will miss dancing next to each and every one of you. Back to NYC y’all 😉 woowee #beepboopbye #pointparkalumni #performer #summergig #jerseygirl

Felt good to come home from a long day of work and get a basement lift in! No matter what kind of day I have, working out is the best therapy!💪🏼 #basementlift #girlswholift #workout #gymistherapy #fitness #fitchick #pointparkalumni #backtofitness #healthyliving #maketodaycount #tonetuesday #motivateyourself #inspireothers

Oh heeeeyyyyy.... look who made it through their first modern dance class together in 18 years! We may be dripping with sweat and a lot rusty, but we did it! Thanks @attacktheatre for a great class! @maryfrypie #likeridingabike #dance #modern #pointparkalumni #probablywontbeabletowalktomorrow
Did someone say National Dance Day? In college, I never knew what was going to be thrown at me. Sometimes we danced outside, sometimes we worked conditioning only, this day I had a camera man on me while I improved for a warmup. 💃 We had to be ready for anything and everything at Point Park University. I had nothing choreographed and had never heard the music that was being played. I couldn’t see my classmates or the camera guy. All I could do is move. #EJC #essentialjuniperco #throwback #college #dance #dancer #pointpark #ppu #pointparkalumni #modern #movement #improve #justme #nothoughts #nopreperation #nationaldanceday #danceday #danceclass #jumpin #justdoit #justmove #move #spotlight #wingingit
Happy National Dance Day. Follow your heart. Dance has given me so much. I've seen the world, made friends from all over, and have been blessed for 40+ years to entertain people. #dancerslife #pointparkalumni #neverlimityourself #danceiseverything
Fabio hair, ballet, and late night shenanigans... and we pick up 16 years later like no time has passed. So fun hanging with an old friend and a new one— @maryfrypie ‘s amazing wife— tonight. It was just the tonic I needed. My heart is full. #oldfriendsarethebestfriends #collegefriends #dancers #somanymemories @pointparku #pointparkalumni

I'm a big fan of nostalgia. I love old things with history, I love that the @pghplayhouse was a German social club in it 1800's and also a synagogue (or was that a myth?). I love that the acoustics in the Rockwell was such that if you whispered on one end, you could hear whatever gossip was going on on the other side. I'm sad that it's going away, that this weird three theatre maze will someday be just a memory. Thanks for the opportunities, Playhouse. I won't play another old bat again until I'm much older, so thank God I got that out of my system when I was 19. (plays pictured: Camino Real, Time of Your Life, and Dark of the Moon)
It’s lights out at the The Pittsburgh Playhouse today. I am so honored and grateful to have performed at such an amazing theatre. More importantly, the playhouse was home while I was at Point Park University. The playhouse was always filled with nothing but endless love and support. I will forever cherish all the memories I made on and offstage there. ❤️❤️❤️ • • • • #lightsout #pittsburghplayhouse #endofanera #pointparkalumni #copa #collegememories #urinetown #littlesally #thelottery #hanselandgretel #oneacts #boxoffice
Happy #NationalHigherEducationDay to our alma maters! We are so thankful for the education we received that helped shape our professional careers. Today we take some time to think fondly of our years at University and appreciate all we learned during our time there. . . . #IndianaUniversity #indianauniversitybloomington #iualumni #PointParkU #pointparkalumni #communicationsdepartment #DickersonCreative

This one is for everyone that said I couldn’t do it. When I was 8 I went to my first day at Steelers training camp, just so happened to be Ben Roethlisberger’s first day as well. I literally fell in love with him, the way he played and presented himself as the next face of the franchise. I took it upon myself from that moment forward to learn everything about the game Ben played. I told everyone that I was going to be a sportscaster one day. No one believed the kid that hid behind her moms legs when someone talked to her could make it as a sportscaster... well flash forward 15 years, here we are. I graduated with my Broadcast Reporting degree, I’ve interviewed Steelers, met just about everyone of them. I was in studio with Charlie Batch, just did crazy things that if you asked 8 year old Julie if they were possible she would of said no.... this is just phase one complete. But it’s a big phase none the less... now it’s time to look for a job... #staytuned #steelers #steelershiremeplease #dreamchaser #dontstop #onlyyouknowyourtruepotential #futuresportscaster #pointparkalumni
Said my goodbyes to this magical building today. So many memories and emotions shared here! Tears, laughter, nerves, frustration, and discoveries. From seeing "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" when I was 7 years old with the Playhouse Jr. "Working" in the box office all 4 years of college. Performing on both the Rauh and Rockwell Stage in "The Playboy of the Western World" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Directing "American Tropical" and "The Bear" in the Raymond Laine Memorial One Act Festival the year after it took a hiatus. Witnessing life changing theatre and learning SO MUCH from my peers, professors, and directors. This place has shaped me as an actor and person. It gave me the confidence to face the uncertainty of a performing artist's life with an open heart and mind. Plus the sheer joy of collaboration and creativity. I am forever grateful to it and for all the lovely ghosts I got to meet. Parting is such sweet sorrow, my dear Playhouse. You live on in the memories of the thousands of people you have inspired. ❤️🎭 #pittsburgh #pittsburghplayhouse #goodbye #actor #actorslife #memories #pointparkuniversity #pointparkalumni #classof2016
4 years ago today I became a first generation college graduate of my family. I am so proud of myself for achieving my goals and becoming everything I’ve wanted to be. I am a product of myself and the best is yet to come. #nowthatseventmanagement #apt10forever #pointparkalumni 💚💛
As I begin my life journey post-college, I can’t even understand how I am going to do this without the amazing family I made these past four years at Point Park. Thank you class of 2018 for not only being my peers but becoming my family I love you all so much and owe a lot of who I have become because of you all!! Let’s go out and take over the world. #classof2018 #PointParkAlumni #DontCallMeAskingForMoney #StillBroke
I covered Point Park’s graduation yesterday! After taking all the video I needed, I decided to shoot some photos. • • • #pointparku #pointparkalumni #graduation #collegegraduation #congratulations #emotions #allsmiles #photojournalism #lovemyjob #nikon #nikond5000 #d500 #ppgpaintsarena #3elieve #eventphotography
And just like that, I leave this place. Not sad or scared, but hopeful. Excited to see where I go next. To those who I’ve met along the way I hope I have positively impacted your life as you did mine. I’m proud to call you my fellow graduates and to some of you, my friends. For now let’s rest and enjoy the free time we have. Soon, we’ll all be back to work. 💚💛 . . . . . . . #pointparkuniversity #pointparkalumni #graduation #graduate #wedidit

What a waste of money! I used a few, drew on a few... I haven’t changed that much right?

Congratulations to Deputy Superintendent Maurita Bryant for being honored this evening by the Criminal Justice Club at Point Park University. I had the honor & privilege of working with her for over 20 years & it was truly humbling to be aforded the opportunity to present my mentor with the exemplary leadership award. She may be with the Allegheny County Police now but after 39 years as a proud member of the Pittsburgh Police, she will always be a significant part of our PBP family & history! #pointparkuniversity #pointparkalumni #pointparkpioneers #criminaljustice #alleghenycountypolice #pittsburghpolice #leadership #pittsburghproud #makingadifference

My photography journey is still ongoing but I don’t share all of it on instagram. This was day 60, photograph something that brings you joy. Dancing brings me so much joy. I’ve been a dancer since I could walk, and i followed that dream into adulthood. Im blessed I have a found multiple jobs in performing since leaving college and there’s really nothing I love doing more than performing and getting to share my love of the art form on the stage. As I’ve gotten older I know this body won’t hold up forever, but I plan to keep dancing as long as I can. #dancerlife * * * * * * * * * #mbljourney2018 #dancer #dancerlife #pointeshoes #pointe #joy #love #forthelove #pink #dancers #nikon #nikond750 #nikonphotography #nikonlove #orlando #performerlife #tolbertyilmazschoolofdance #roswelldancetheatre #orlandolife #orlandophotographer #light #prettyinpink #pointpark #pointparkalumni #dowhatbringsyoujoy #365photochallenge #my365

Another dance post...but for a good reason. I saw this picture of one of my best friends and had to say something. I wanted to let the whole world know how beautiful and amazing you are.
