Since the death of Julia’s daughter Jane Aubrey, Julia has been committed to raising awareness and making a difference in her community. Julia desires to travel across the country to educate and help other people come together to make a lasting difference in their communities

Julia Picetti was born and raised in Northern Nevada and loves Reno! She is married to Dan Tilzey, and they have a blended family of 5 children, including Jane Aubrey who passed away in March of 2015. Julia loves hiking in the Sierras and on local trails, loves her friends and is very active at Grace Church.

Since the passing of Julia’s daughter Jane, Julia led the charge to remodel and open the Jane Aubrey House. This recovery home helps and guides young women ages 18-25 as they move toward recovery from opiate addiction. Her hope is to continue supporting other families struggling with this addiction.
