Julia Baker

Snake Wrangler, High Achiever, Keynote Speaker & MC

Julia Baker is the much admired star of Animal Planet's top rating international TV series Snake Sheila. She's also a top-ranking keynote speaker, MC and workshop facilitator.

Julia's mission in life is to prove that no matter what your past or circumstances are, "if you can dream it - you can achieve it!" It's a mission that comes from experience. At a relatively young age, Julia transformed herself from being a depressed, overweight, divorced pastry chef into a snake wrangling, acting, chopper riding Super Mum with two businesses, a TV series and a speaking career and her dream man.

Julia regularly appears on popular TV shows such as The Project (Channel 9); Sunrise (Channel 7); and ABC Radio.

Julia is an entertaining, yet down to earth speaker who custom writes speeches to suit each client and always delivers practical messages that inspire others to follow their dreams and achieve them. She's also an hilarious MC and she's got a great four our workshop up her sleeve.

More about Julia Baker:

At the age of 40, Julia decided to change her life. She wrote herself a bucketlist and set out to fulfil it. Within seven years, she'd achieved an advanced diploma in acting; a diploma in marketing with distinction; she'd gained her motorbike licence and bought herself a chopper, and she'd gained her snake handler's licence as well as a wildlife exhibitor's licence. Julia had even met and married her dream man!

Now she's helping others to achieve their bucketlist with practical strategies and masses of inspiration.

Julia is much loved for her entertaining skills and sense of humour, as well as her brave no-nonsense approach to life and of course her incredible ability to catch and handle the most venomous snakes in Australia.
