Julia Nurse Former Staff

Julia Nurse is currently a senior at Redwood High school. Although she would love to say that beautiful Marin is her “hometown”, she cannot since she has only lived here for a couple of years. Julia was born in Oregon and has lived in five separate states on each coast and moved eight times. While this has been immensely challenging for her, it has been a great adventure. During her time at Redwood she has been able to take challenging and interesting classes, make great friends, compete in sports and of course, become a member of the school newspaper, the Redwood Bark.
