Whooo... are you?
I am Dr. Julie Tullock. My three brothers and I grew up in Tryon, NC. I went to optometry school in Memphis, Tennessee, but I love the mountains so I came home to them. I have three children; one girl and two boys. We all love to hike, especially to waterfalls. We’ve hiked to almost all them in Western North Carolina, as well as many in South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia. I also love to travel, mostly in America, but I’ve been to Paris, England, Italy, and Ireland. We’re planning to go to Switzerland for a hiking adventure sometime soon. I also love to snow ski in Utah, and I’ve been on mission trips to Chile and Saipan.

What was your first job?
My dad invented a walking golf cart called
the Kangaroo Caddy. I worked in the accounting
department for his business while I was in high school.
What do you love most about your career as an optometrist?
I love meeting people and helping them see better. I love to get them out of
reading glasses and into contacts so their eyesight is improved. I’ve been with Asheville Eye Associates for 25 years now.
Do you have any hobbies?
Hiking and snow skiing, of course. I also love to research nutrition. I love helping people with their health problems. I like to teach them healthy cooking and
nutritional habits. What we eat is so important to good health.
Do you collect anything?
Not really, just Christmas ornaments from our travels.
What did you learn from growing up with three brothers?
I learned a lot! I was always much smaller than them so they were very protective of me. They taught me to be respectful, to stand up for myself, and to have good work ethics.
Do you have any pets?
We have three dogs; two Australian Shepards and one Maltipoo.
What do you put on your pizza?
Olives, onions, pepper, spinach, and garlic, but no cheese.

Spending time with my family. My dad comes over for supper every Friday night. We enjoy our time together.
