Julie D’Ambra

 

Julie is a Millbury native who graduated from Millbury High School in 1986. She has three children; Kayleigh, Justin and Georgia. Julie enjoys painting, baking and visiting the beaches of Cape Cod.

 

Julie and Ron met working in the transportation industry and worked together at AA Transportation for fifteen years. In 2015 Julie stepped down from her role as Human Resources Director to focus her time working with local nonprofit organizations and caring for the animals on their farm.

 

Ron & Julie enjoy spending time at the gym working out together, this past fall they competed in a body building competition together. When they are not at the gym or doing farm chores they like to spend time together on Cape Cod.

 

The couple has often debated the role of genetics vs life experiences in creating who one’s self becomes. They agree that life lessons are often hard and do change your course and for this they are forever grateful that the broken road has brought them to this day.
