JULIA OWENS Philanthropic advisor Julia Owens grew up in Beacon Hill and attended Phillips Academy in Andover. She advises clients about high-risk charitable giving and has been a trustee of a family foundation for almost 20 years. For Owens, philanthropy is not about seeing her name on the side of a hospital wing; it's about getting her hands dirty and moving the needle. Age: 32. No one would guess: I am a really good freestyle rapper. Cause closest to my heart: Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts. Boston guilty pleasure: A Fenway frank at a Sox game. I stay in shape by: My walk to work is 1.17 miles, so no matter how hectic my day is, I get in that walk two times a day. Beauty black book: Corey at Mario Russo does my hair and is also my Dr. Phil. I go in for highlights and come out with a new life plan! Next decade: I want to have a family in whatever form that takes. I would adopt in a heartbeat or be a single parent if that made sense. Advice to my 16-year-old self: Pearls and a Patagonia is not a good look. beauté: Rouge d'Armani Lipstick in 401, Giorgio Armani Beauty ($30).
