MTA WA CEO Stephen Moir said "Julie's level of service to the industry has been just extraordinary, not only has she volunteered her time serving on the MTA WA Board and Body Repair Division Committee, she also serves the RAC WA and Capricorn Society." 

"She is incredibly passionate about the industry and has been a fearless advocate and ambassador for the sector."

"It's also been wonderful to welcome Julie as the first woman to hold life membership of the MTA WA, I hope it will inspire other female automotive entreprenurs to get involved in the automotive industry,"  Mr Moir said.
