I was just observing a minute silence for remembrance day and I remembered Julia. Again some years have passed but she has not been forgotten. Thank you Julia, thank you.

It has now been a few years since Julia's passing and the passing of her fiance soon after. Julia rang me many years ago and asked me to join her team as a writing tutor. She gave me my first ever writing related job. I owe her a great deal, as I have managed to stay in the writing teaching field as well as expand my own writing career. Julia was always supportive, even when I was in my really bad place. She will always be remembered for her grace and calm mind. To say I miss her is an understatement, to say I still remember her fondly after all these years is testament to her life. I don't know who will see this, if anyone, but please know she left a decent mark on the world and in people's lives.

There is a saying if you don't have anything nice to say don't say it at all. My condolences to her familiy and friends if she had any.

As a student at Australian College QED I spoke to Julia at the start of my course. I always found her to be a warm ad considerate person: a real professional in her field. She also had a large part in putting together and writing my course materials. I didn't know abut this until today [studying by distance mode]. I am shocked. I like a lot of students will miss her.

I've been in shock since Julia was taken from us by a sudden illness. I joined her company at around the two year mark and was amazed at the growth and development which took place as demand for her courses increased. In a few short years her college develped a strong national student base and at the same time amazingly, international enrolments grew too! All around the world on Islands and in remote places, as well as populous cities, people are still changing their lives with her help. One of our alumni is now amongst the 50 most influential women in Australia. We remember Julia's energy, passion and committment. Julia we salute you and strive to continue to live your dreams.

You had a smile at all times and worked hard and played even harder. It was such a shock to hear of your passing but grateful to have known you. RIP x Jo Totally U

I have really fond memories of Julia, she was a good friend and a great boss, if she believed in you she gave you every opportunity and all the help that was in her power to give. She created a great culture at the Australian College QED and I'm sure she'll be sorely missed there. She had boundless energy as well as some crazy off the wall ideas at times but she was invigorating to be around and it was always a party when you went out with her. She will be missed and remembered with much love. Joanna Callander, UK

As the CEO of Options Community Enterprises I worked with Julia (nickname "JB") for a number of years. Julia (originally Julie) was the driver of the development of Northern Beaches Skillshare and then the instigator and main developer of Options Training Division. Julia was creative, intelligent, ambitious, a hardworker and very loyal. There are many great times to remember and I hope she forgives me for one of the great gafs of my life of forgetting to publically acknowledge her and all her efforts at the official opening of Dee Why SkillShare which she didn't let me forget about for many years. She always invincible and striving deeply for something. So whether now in peace or still moving on - go JB.
