In her role as director of sales and marketing, Julie oversaw quoting and purchasing of hardware and software for the firm. Her husband Mick is managing director. He's had over 17 years experience in the IT industry, having worked for Telstra amongst other firms. He started the North Gosford Loyal I.T. Solutions business in 2002.

Now, however, Julie will have $100,000 and a cook book deal with Random House to help keep the family finances running. She will also be able to take advantage of top chefs to hone her skills.

Julie seemed to have been the only representative of the IT industry in the show, with other contestants having varying roles from mum to food photographer, fishmonger and solicitor.

Her final cook off was against Poh, an artist from South Australia. Julie scored highest in all the three challenges ranged against her.

Loyal I.T. Solutions clients include Gosford City Council, Robson Excavations and Parkwood Homes. It has partnerships with Microsoft, IBM, Symantec, Cisco, Pacnet, HP, D-Link, MessageLabs and Linksys.
