Julie was of Catholic faith. In 1978 Julie and her husband Frank decided to begin a real estate career that offered flexibility to earn a living and juggle all their activities. Julie worked in asset management and grew their business into a full property management company known as C and C Real Estate. Julie was a Florida Licensed Broker.
Julie and Frank Connelley moved to Cape Coral in 1984.

She served on many committees with the Cape Coral Association of Realtors, spending a great deal of time serving on the Grievance Committee. Julie was the consummate Mom.
