Meet Julie Chaplin
You don’t have to live in a big city to have a rich, vibrant community, says Julie Chaplin. In fact, Julie believes that small towns like Smithers offer a more enriching lifestyle. “I feel part of the small town community and love growing my roots deeper into the community that I call home. I don’t feel alone,” says Julie. “There are so many amazing people in this town who make it the special place that it is.”
Julie made a conscious decision to live in Smithers because of everything it had to offer. She believes it is the ideal place to raise her family, and it has turned out to be a wonderful place to operate her business, which she has run since 2012. She is constantly amazed by the diverse and dynamic business community here. “There are some energetic young entrepreneurs, a vibrancy and positive energy of people following their dreams, and succeeding!” She believes that this energy will carry Smithers into the future. “There is strength in numbers and I think our community and business owners and mayor care enough about our downtown that we will persevere through the challenges that big box stores will present.”
As a 5 Elements practitioner, Julie is very connected to the outdoors and the physical world around her. For her and her family, this often translates into spending time outside doing their favourite activities, like camping, hiking and skiing. Indoors, Julie enjoys painting and reading. She also likes to sing, particularly when she is joined by her fellow singers in the Local Vocals Community Choir.
