Success Story: Thea

""Julie Nation helped me celebrate my life. I learned the art of knowing how to work what God gave me. There's power in learning something. I've learned about myself and I sure value and love me.

In regards to Showcase, what a great event and dinner, too! I heard nothing but complimentary comments about the whole day. Christina did an amazing professional runway troupe arrangement. It was so much more than we've seen, very impressive!

In reflection, the experiences I have had as a result in taking your classes have been Awesome! I've participated in runway modeling, commercial work, public speaking, teaching and creating classes, and watching children and adults I know personally having lights turn on, being trusted, supported and encouraged. Being a part of Julie Nation Academy has filled my life with such joy and continues to do so."

Thea has appeared in the 2012 and 2014 River Rock Casino commercials. "
