My name is Julia Scherting and I am from Bellingham, WA (about 2 hours north of Seattle). I attend Western Washington University which is in the same town. Growing up in Bellingham has been a great experience because there are numerous outdoor activities to become involved with in this area. Some of my interests include snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, running, swimming, volleyball and soccer. When I discovered the Therapeutic Recreation program at WWU I became very excited about a future career in this field. My passion is to create environments and opportunities for people of all abilities to increase their overall quality of life through leisure and recreation. I am looking forward to completing my internship and meeting some great people at KADEP and also experiencing Colorado!
