Are you ready to hear Julia Shreve ROAR? The Director of Marketing – Brand and Innovation at Mastronardi Produce®/SUNSET® is a welcome visitor in AndNowUKnow and The Snack’s inbox, and boy, were we excited to see this roundup of responses. Throw on a pair of sweats and some classical music, or go full-throttle and jump off the side of a mountain with a parachute strapped to your back. Either way, you will get a taste of the adventurous life led by Julia and even get a peek at her “what IFs”…
IF you had to choose now, what would your last meal consist of?
Tacos. I will never pass up a good taco. Followed by cheesecake, of course.
IF you could imagine yourself in a different industry, what would it be?
I really enjoyed my time in consulting because I got to experience a whole range of industries. It’s so interesting to see what sets industries apart and also what is common across them. I learned a lot about what keeps leaders up at night and what matters most.
IF you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
Chopin. I’m a pianist, and he’s always been one of my favorites to play. His music is infused with so much emotion and his life experiences sounded fascinating. A tortured soul, but one with good stories and perspectives!
IF you had to wear the same thing every day, what items of clothing would you pick?
Yoga pants and a sweatshirt. I’m all about being comfortable!
IF you were another species in the animal kingdom, what would you be?
A giraffe—feet on the ground with a unique perspective above the trees. And very calm and serene.
IF you could make everyone watch a movie of your choosing, which movie would you want them to see?
The Sound of Music! It brings me so much joy! My kids have the whole thing memorized now, we watch it together every year.
IF you had to eat the same thing every day for the rest of your days, what would you eat?
Starbucks’ Egg White and Feta Wrap. Good any time of day!
IF you could join a musician, dead or alive, on stage to sing along or play an instrument with, who would you choose and why?
Lady Gaga! I love her musicality, creativity, and boldness.
IF you could re-experience an awesome day in your life, what day would you choose and why?
The day I went paragliding in the Swiss Alps. I conquered my fear of heights and jumped off the side of a mountain with a parachute. I was rewarded with the most amazing, gorgeous views on the way down.
IF you had a superpower, what would you want it to be?
Flying. I love seeing new places and could get there much faster (and cheaper) if I could fly!
IF you had to choose one song to be the soundtrack of your year, what would it be?
“Roar” by Katy Perry. I turned 40 this year and have realized how empowering it is to not let myself be held back by what other people think.
