Little AnnaBella age 7 is CEO JulieAnn’s daughter; the two of them escaped Domestic Violence. In this photo her daughter fell asleep at a restaurant next to the courthouse. The two were exhausted, and with no family left they found shelter in a restaurant. At the same time; JulieAnn’s soon to be ex was stalking them. He traced her phone and she had to get law enforcement to step in. He followed her on social media and showed up at friends and business partners homes.
