A Little More about JuliaSubmitted by U.S. Wealth Management of Boston on October 2nd, 2019

I’ve been working for Rick and Tom for about 6 months now so a lot of you have probably heard from me by now. I thought I would make my first article a little more of an about me. If you’ve read my bio on our website, you probably have a good idea of my educational background and work experience, so this article is to get to know me a little more.
First fun fact is that I am one of seven; I have a twin sister, four younger brothers, and one older brother. Yes, it was just me, my sister, and my mom living in a house with 6 boys. Everyone has called us the Crane Clan, and when my mom would drive us around in a twelve passenger van, everyone knew who was behind the wheel. If you think seven kids in one house isn’t chaotic enough, we are also an animal loving family. Throughout my life we had all different kinds of animals including Boston Terriers, a few Chihuahuas, cats, ducks, chickens, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, birds, and even a goose (not all at the same time). Don’t be fooled, we don’t live on a farm, just a small house in Billerica.
Growing up with such a large family, and so many of them being younger than me, I wanted to stay close when I went to college. That’s one of the many reasons I chose SNHU, it was only an hour away. For most of my semesters I lived on campus, but towards the end I moved into my parent’s in-law apartment. From here I started my own little animal family with a Boston Terrier named Beef, a Pineapple Conure named Kiwi, and a bunny named Tucker. I think if I was living in something larger than a studio apartment I would probably have at least one more pet.
I think as a last fact, I should probably explain why my dogs name is Beef. My whole life my mom breed Boston Terriers, so I was always welcoming new puppies into the world and helping them find their forever homes. Although I love Boston Terriers, I never thought I would get one of my own. Then there was a litter of just one puppy, a little girl. I grew more attached to her than I had other dogs in the past, so logically I had to have her. My mom was okay with me taking her, but now it was up to convince my boyfriend at the time. He told me we could keep her under one condition, he got to name her. So he started to call her Beef, thinking that I wouldn’t want to keep a dog named Beef. Well, he was wrong. So now I have a 12 pound, female, Boston Terrier, named BEEF.
That is just a little more into my background. Stay tuned for my next article when I tell you about the time Kiwi flew away.
