Julie Golob began her shooting career when she was fourteen, practicing with her father, Pete Goloski. She continued competing through high school and, in 1994, met with the coach of the Army Action Shooting Team. The coach sent her a letter of acceptance and Julie joined the United States Army. In 1999, she competed at the USPSA Nationals and ended up winning at the Limited and Open Division. That year, she was also named US Army Athlete of the Year.

In 2002, Golob left the Army to become a professional markswoman. In 2006 Julie joined Team Smith & Wesson. In 2006, Golob won three Divisions at the USPSA Nationals (Limited-10, Single Stack, and Production), becoming the first woman to do so. More recently, she won the Production and Revolver Division at the 2011 USPSA Nationals as Julie Golob. This was the first time any shooter had won all six divisions.

In 2012, Golob appeared as an expert in the fourth season of History Channel’s Top Shot.
