Julie Sainsbury has been with the studio since its beginnings in a single studio room. What began as doing the bookkeeping and studio organization for fifty families has evolved into being the office manager for the Salem studio, finances and payroll, and organizing details for performances and other matters with the many Lifehouse families of today. Two of her daughters danced with Lifehouse for many years, loving all of it, and enjoying this beautiful art form on college levels and now as teachers. She appreciates the quality of instruction received at the studio and sees the positive impact of Lifehouse’s seven values in the lives of the students. With a degree in nursing which was set aside to raise a family, she never dreamed she would be working for a performing art studio but really enjoys what she does and her interaction with teachers and students. She is the mother of a large family and loves being grandma to several grandchildren.
