She/Her, They/Them

Julie Nowak (M.Ed.) is an educator, activist, consultant, and soon-to-be podcaster based near Tkaronto (known as Toronto, Canada). With a background in education, community development, public health, and the food justice movement, she founded "The Seasonal Body" - a project exploring the intersection of disability justice, nature connection, body liberation, and food justice. This focus stems from her personal experience of living as a disabled person with multiple chronic illnesses after traumatic brain injury, as well as finding healing from disordered eating through therapeutic farming. Julie is also passionate about linguistics and language justice, and can optionally provide her work in English, French, and Spanish.
