Hi, I’m Julie
I’m the host for all Dakota Gal Digs. I am originally from North Dakota but now live in the Chicago Area. I have been married to my husband Les for over 30 years. We have four boys, one grandson, Elias, and a granddaughter on the way. I love spending time with my family, cooking, walking my dog, traveling, and I am a foodie at heart. So naturally, the best thing to do on our travels is to eat our way through the different cities we visit.
I became a host because every time we stayed somewhere we would talk about how we could make it better. With my husband’s background in construction and my background as an interior stylist, we acquired our first dig, Lucky Lady, in Milwaukee.
As an interior stylist, I believe every room and space needs to have its own identity, its own personality. Using that same concept I design each property to have its very own personality adding function and character along the way. Making each property unique and welcoming for everyone to enjoy is one of my favorite things to do.
We now have six Dakota Gal Digs to enjoy and more to come!
