Faculty

Julia Worrall RN, CCRN, SANE

Julia Worrall RN, CCRN, SANE

Executive Director, FACE

Julia Worrall is a Registered Nurse, Executive Director of FACE ™ - The Foundation for Airway and Craniofacial Excellence and Co-Founder of Correct Sleep.

There is good reason why Julia Worrall is constantly asked to speak at conferences, high-level meetings, and be interviewed for popular medical podcasts all over the world: this highly sought-after expert in airway health has quickly risen to the top of her field by connecting what was once thought to be disconnected. The result has changed lives and revolutionized medical practices around the world.

Having began her career as a Registered Nurse, Ms. Worrall quickly rose in the ranks from Psychiatric RN, to Emergency Room RN, to Charge RN . She soon landed a contracted position with the California Department of Corrections, where she was instrumental in creating a cultural shift within a historically challenging environment. Charged with implementing federally mandated medical policies and procedures to improve patient outcomes, she created collaborative lesson plans and ‘hands-on’ drills to teach correctional officers, doctors, dentists, psychiatry and nursing staff, protocols for reacting to riots and emergencies in addition to the ongoing management of chronic health conditions.

Critical care became her focus for the next several years, working with critically ill or injured clients, pediatric to geriatric. During this time, Ms. Worrall acted as supervisor of all hospital departments, facilitated critical care patient transfers, and coordinated care and discharge planning, among other important duties.

With all this experience under her belt, Ms. Worrall couldn’t have predicted that it would be as a patient that she’d experience her truly career-altering moment. When a dental provider successfully treated her intractable migraines and sleep issues, a whole new world opened up before her. Ms. Worrall developed an insatiable appetite for learning more about this critical link between craniofacial issues and sleep. She took course after course and burned the midnight oil researching to learn more about this little-known connection.

It was her passion for this multidisciplinary link that set Julia’s career in a new direction, and skyrocketed her to become one of the most respected names in airway health. By 2018, Ms. Worrall had founded Correct Sleep, together with partners Dr. Alexandra Porfir and Dr. Deepak Shrivastava. The former had her lecturing at international medical conferences, courses, and events around the world, contributing to respected journals and medical textbooks, and participating in events for correctional medical providers and peace officers. The latter had Worrall involved in every stage of the creation of a worldwide Airway Advocate community, from planning, development, set-up, and implementation of workshops that have changed lives across continents.

She now sits on the Executive Board for the Foundation for Airway Health, the Advisory Board for ALF InterFACE Academy and is a faculty member of the Indian Society for Sleep Research.

Alexandra Porfir, DDS

Dr. Alexandra Porfir, Co-Founder of Correct Sleep, earned her DDS degree from the University of Medicine and Pharmacy College of Dentistry in Timisora, Romania in 2001, marking the beginning of a long illustrious orthodontics/craniofacial medical education. In 2002, Alex relocated to Chicago where she earned a Master's of Science degree in Oral Sciences (2003) and a PhD in BioEngineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago (2006). She earned her Orthodontic Certificate from the Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas Texas (2008), with clinical and surgical training in the correction of craniofacial deformities and malocclusions (misaligned teeth). 

Alex served as a graduate research assistant under the guidance and tutelage of Drs. Carla Evans DDS, DMSc, Liu Hong MD, PhD, and Jeremy Mao, DDS, PhD at the University of Illinois at Chicago in the Departments of Orthodontics and Bioengineering, as well as with Dr. Carmen Colojoara DDS, PhD in the Department of Oral Rehabilitation in Romania.

In 2014, she completed a year-long residency at the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, where she became interested in the rehabilitation rights of all humans facing the debilitating effects of sleep deprivation caused by respiratory, skeletal, and dental disorders. She is currently a member of the American Association of Orthodontics and its Foundation association, and a fellow in the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine (AIMH), "an interprofessional association of integrative clinicians who embrace a person-centered, team-based approach to health care."

Alex is a prolific researcher and writer, authoring a nearly three dozen abstracts, presentations, and articles on skeletal and craniofacial topics; from cellular and anabolic responses to sutures and high-frequency tensile and compressive forces, to magnetic resonance microscopy, and adipose tissue engineering by human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). In addition, she has authored the books, Oral Rehabilitation and Dental Emergencies: Patients with medical risk in dental practice (2001), and The Patient's Oral Rehabilitation: The basic principles in investigation, diagnosis and treatment methods (2000), both published by C.Colojoara, M. Miron (LITO-UMFT), in Romania.

Since 2010, Alex has been a full-time practitioner focusing on traditional orthodontics and craniofacial deformities, as well as the assessment and management of sleep breathing disorders in children and adults. Her specialty is the focus on the growth and development of the craniofacial skeleton, upper airway passages, and the neuro-emotional behavior arising from the maladies to these systems. 

She has earned numerous grants, scholarships, and awards for her work in orthodontics, research, and for her scientific and academic excellence. Her volunteer activities while based in Romania include dental screening, prevention and promotion of oral health for orphans and underprivileged districts, as well as the promotion of dental-care education for expectant mothers.

Ports of Call

Los Angeles, California - Los Angeles is a relatively young city, barely over a century old. This 467-square-mile desert basin is not only the center of the world's film industry; it also plays a major role in television, fashion, music and art. No wonder some of the world's most famous individuals choose L.A. as their home. The sunsets over the Pacific are nothing less than spectacular, and there are 72 miles of incredible oceanfront beaches from which to enjoy them.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Puerto Vallarta has all the amenities of a classic beach resort ‐ surf, sand and sun‐ but it also offers so much more. Perfect for honeymooners, families and seniors alike, Puerto Vallarta offers sport fishing, golfing, horseback riding, hiking and whale watching. Boasting mountains, jungles, beaches, rivers, and waterfalls, this port is completely different from any other destination in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta is a modern destination that remains loyal to its traditional Mexican roots. And that's just scratching the surface.

Mazatlan, Mexico - If you're ready to experience some of the finest sailing and sport fishing available, then you're ready for Mazatlan. This is an exquisite seaside resort by anyone's standards. Of course, you don't have to partake in world-class water sports to enjoy Mazatlan. You can relax on one of its soft-sand beaches caressed by trade winds that are even softer. Or shop for silver jewelry and Mexican crafts in the shops of "The Golden Zone", where you can also celebrate your purchases at one of the area's lively cantinas.

Cabo San Lucas - Championship golf courses, world-class deep sea fishing and incredible diving opportunities have transformed Cabo San Lucas, a once sleepy fishing town located on the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, into one of the most popular resort destinations in Mexico. Rolling sand dunes and hidden coves dot a countryside ringed by some of the most famous and often-photographed rock formations in the world.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel protection is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel protection is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel protection is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.

Travel Protection Plans

  • TravelSafe Basic Plan - A plan for those who want just the bare necessities.
