Trails Carolina Staff Bio

Admissions Team


Julia Andrick

Admissions & Outreach

Julia began working in the therapeutic school and program field in 2000. Since that time, she has worked with countless families and witnessed the profoundly powerful impact wilderness therapy has had on their children.

She also has first-hand experience. Her daughter was struggling and she didn’t hesitate to send her to a wilderness therapy program, where she had a life-changing experience. Julia has an innate ability to get to the heart of the matter with parents and does so with warmth, compassion, and genuine connection.

Born and raised just outside the Nation’s Capital, her twin sister, and only sibling, moved to a beautiful small town and she and her parents soon followed. All now enjoy fresh mountain air and a quieter pace of life. She is mother to a son and daughter, who are her number one priority, followed closely by her dogs. When not working, you’ll find her walking her dogs, participating in hot yoga, drinking coffee, and relaxing with a great book.

Trails saved my daughter’s life. Amanda is an amazing human and a brilliant therapist. I am so grateful to her, Science Steve, and the other wonderful people who could reach my daughter at a time when I could not.

Great life changing experience for our son. After becoming addicted to gaming during covid he was very depressed. At Trails he experienced the wilderness, Science Steve, learning survival skills and top notch therapy and support etc… I highly recommend! This gave our son and our family a renewed family bond full of love and excitement about his bright future.
