What our customers say about Julie

More about Julie

Julie was brought up in Rochdale and initially trained as a registered nurse in Edinburgh, but although she loved helping people she soon got tired of NHS politics. Being a bit of an amateur car-tinkerer, she decided to go and study engineering, and graduated from Manchester with a B.Eng degree in 1989. At this point in her life she’d never thought of becoming a plumber. She has worked in medical, electrical and technical engineering, and finally became self-employed as an engineering cost-analyst in 2009. It was whilst working on a project for a water pump manufacturer that she first became interested in all-things plumbing, and she started to study for the City & Guilds qualification and carry out small plumbing jobs alongside her “day-job”. Eventually lots of referrals for plumbing work from happy customers meant she could become a full-time plumber in 2013, and Julie joined Stopcocks in April 2015.

Julie now specialises in enabling people who require level access bathrooms to live independently in their own homes by converting their bathrooms into level access or low rise shower rooms. She often works with her son Tom who is a tiler.

She lives with Nigel her partner, and they have recently become grandparents for the first time. Their toddler grandson keeps them both fit!

“Plumbing is the best work in the world for me – I can use my practical skills to help people, and apply engineering logic to diagnose faults as well. Everybody’s plumbing problem is a different challenge, and you learn something new every single day. I only wish I had done it years ago!”
