Get to Know Mojjo
In 2014, we came together to create an agency to focus on client partners who are making a difference in the world so we could lend our talents to building enterprises and communities that make life better for all.
MoJJo began working with clients who were caring for and supporting the elderly, advancing the goals of academic medicine, launching new brands that are focused on wholesome foods and healthy eating, opening doors of opportunity for women and people of color in business, and fostering international understanding through educational travel.

Outside of work hours, Julia is a volunteer teacher for an English as a Second Language program. She, her husband, and a rather vocal cat Toby, all reside just outside of New York City, in New Providence, NJ.
