Julia Collins ’14
Columbia College Day Program
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Growing up in Mark Twain’s hometown of Hannibal, Missouri, Julia Collins had a Tom Sawyer-like childhood running around with her siblings and adventuring in a small town. She grew up playing any and all sports she could, and started her career at Martin’s True Value Hardware where she learned a great foundation of being a hardworking, loyal and dependable employee.

She studied Computer Science and Mathematics at Columbia College where she learned from and was supported by the tireless educator-turned-mentor, Dr. Yihsiang Liow. Julia ran cross country, indoor track and outdoor track and spent all of her other time in either Dr. Liow’s office or the Stafford Library working through programming challenges.

Julia lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and is planning a September 2022 wedding. She is managing partner of Truss and Accomplice at Lincoln Labs.
