As a former managing editor of Hawaii Magazine, Julie DeMello became well versed in the beauty, history, culture, and activities of the Hawaiian Islands. Her career gave her the opportunity to explore the nuances of Hawaii's small towns, many beaches, and fun-filled attactions. She has felt the pulsating heat from the erupting Kilauea on the Big Island, sailed Kauai's Na Pali Coast, hiked to the top of Diamond Head, ridden mules on Molokai, picked pineapple on Lanai, and watched the dawn of a new day from the top of Haleakala. Julie currently works as a full-time mom, alwayus searching for the next great family adventure. She lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.
