Julie's adventurous spirit brought her to tropical St. Thomas in 1991 from Minneapolis, Minnesota. She loves the white sand beaches, endless sunshine, cultural diversity, and rich opportunities that St.Thomas provides. Julie has had a lifelong passion for adventure. In 1993 she sailed across the atlantic from Antigua to Europe. The vessel was a 45 year old Danish sailing vessel named Vendia. It was a rugged double masted, gaff rigged, 68 foot long wooden ship. After the Atlantic crossing, Julie embarked on a year long voyage through the Mediterranean. During that year she visited nearly all of the islands, including the greek isles. Next for Julie was a journey to Tuscany, where she spent a month at a thousand year old Abbey called Badia a Coltibuono. There she immersed herself in the vibrant and historic Tuscan culture.
The last stop on her year long journey was St. Anton, Austria for some skiing. Upon her return she began working in wholesale jewelry. She learned so much, and met many wonderful people. Julie loved following the cruise ships to all major cruise ports: Eastern and Western Caribbean, Mexico, Bahamas, Bermuda, Alaska, Hawaii and more (none of which come close to the panoramic views of St. Thomas!). In 1996, she spent a month exploring Costa Rica. While there she indulged her penchant for adventure with trekking, white water rafting, volcano climbing, and horseback riding. Perhaps most importantly though, there she experienced her first zipline adventure. She describes her tropical zip adventure, as one of the most exhilarating and inspiring experiences of her life.
It was such an amazing experience, Julie decided that she would open a zipline in St. Thomas one day. She held this vision since 1996. In 2008, Julie decided it was time to make her dream of opening a zipline on St. Thomas a reality. She began to seek out property on which to build her dream. But, finding an affordable large tract of land, located in a rainforest environment on this small island was an arduous task. Patience and persistence prevailed. In 2011 she was able to secure the 8 acre tract of land we now call Tree Limin' Extreme. The location was an idyllic slice of tropical rainforest across from an existing tourist attraction high on St. Peter Mountain. It was perfection, and the dream became a reality. Julie believes the park is an excellent edition to Virgin Islands Tourism. “We will create the ultimate caribbean experience” she says. “We want our guests to feel as if they have truly experienced our culture. From our traditional architecture and terraced stone walls filled with local flora, caribbean fruit trees, and fauna, to the sweeping views of our many islands and cays. This park embodies the best of what our amazing islands have to offer.” So please come and see us here at Tree Limin' Extreme. Come experience the VI spirit, our history, and of course the adrenaline filled tour itself. After all, it is da island ting!
