Julie has 20 plus years in communications, working at agencies in Seattle and New York, as well as in-house for engineering and financial services firms. Her experience spans multiple industries and audiences, including tech, healthcare, and public affairs.
She completed a doctorate in 2019 and is endlessly energized by education, serving as an adjunct professor for digital marketing and business communications courses, as well as launching a STEM focused charter school.
Gluttonous polyglot, ocean ogler, and tireless traveler, Julie has spent time on every continent (including Antarctica, where she sat amongst penguins and gazed at a glacier). She’s a published writer (fiction and fascinating facts), and she once got to grace the Seattle International Film Festival’s silver screen, acting in a film short she co-wrote and produced.
