    Okay, time to change up the “Juli Lawrence Official Bio,” because who needs to see a half-completed CV? Nobody. If someone needs my CV, they sure aren’t checking this site.

    And if you’re someone who Googled Juli Lawrence, then what is it you want to know? My educational background? My work history? Hair color?

    I’ll change this up again, but for now, here’s all you need to know. This is in the spirit of the Sochi Olympics, and let me say GO TEAM RUSSIA!

    I’m excited the rest of the world will get to see the beauty of Russia in the ceremonies. This is the Russia I love more than life itself.

    I’m a Russophile. I love Russia, I love Russian literature and culture. I lived in Russia, attended Leningrad State University (now St. Petersburg State) and my heart will always be in Russia.

    I speak Russian, I love Russian, I taught Russian for two years at SIU-C and most of the time, I give my pets Russian names.

    I also love the former Yugoslavia and the former republics of the Soviet Union.

    So why do I live in the US?

    An unfortunate accident of birth.

    Questions?
