We're overdue to write an update and tell you all about Julia; our talented Cherry Velvet Social Media Coordinator. We're grateful to have this amazing artist working with us since 2019. Recently, Julia has taken over as our Digital Designer and also writes the Cherry Velvet newsletters among other important creative contributions. Her attention to detail, sweet personality and great sense of style make her a highly valued member of our team.

The happy couple is currently en route to Europe and their new home in the fantastic city of Berlin (her husband is an EU citizen). Julia says she's trying to stay open to what the universe is bringing her and she will make the best of this new adventure. She's looking forward to seeing more of the world, learning a new language, and trying out lots of new foods... once the pandemic restrictions are lessened of course.

The silver lining is that Julia will still be part of our CV team once she is settled in her new home, and her artistic skills will continue to be appreciated here. We are sad that she's leaving the country but glad that she's still going to work with us. We wish her a heartfelt Bon Voyage; a safe journey and look forward to seeing some of her adventures. Julia's next chapter is just beginning...
