The Living Room International

Podcast with Catie and Juli

This week’s guest Juli McGowan Boit is an NP, author, and the founder of The Living Room International. With a passion for HIV and AIDS treatment, Juli went on a short trip to Kenya to pursue her passion and fell in love! After she finished up her schooling Juli moved to Kenya for what she thought would be a year–but that was in 2004! 

As an RN both in Kenya and California, Juli opened a self-sufficient in-patient hospice. While The Living Room International relies on grants and fundraising to operate, Juil and her team have opened up other businesses to provide a steady flow of income. Juli mentions that one of their most successful projects is a community funeral home! 

Juli is also the author of From Beyond The Skies, which was inspired by caring for her adoptive children, three of whom have sickle cell disease. Her book highlights her journey in Kenya and brings light to the realities of sickle cell disease both in Kenya and around the globe.
