Julie has been working in the dive industry, and with the Shannon family, for over 15 years. An avid boater and "adventure" sports enthusiast from a young age, it was a natural fit for Julie to find her way to the diving world. Always willing to go the extra mile for a customer, Julie runs the "whole show" at Oakville Divers, keeping the shop and the dive training running smoothly (and often having to keep that Shannon boy in line).
Following a successful career in the marketing and PR industry, Julie returned to Oakville Divers after the arrival of her daughter. Proving that Oakville Divers is a "family business" as well as a "family friendly" business, Julie often has her 4 year old daughter hanging out in the shop (she is one tough sales staff!) and is also God-Mother to the other mini diver that runs around the shop.
Julie is also in charge of our Oakville Divers Commercial Sales Division and Co-coordinator for Oakville Divers Toronto Hollywood North Film and Media Production.
