Julie began her association career in 2003 with the Edison Electric Institute, and has since managed domestic and international conferences for the Color Marketing Group, served as Administrator for several large commercial real estate organizations, and traveled extensively with high-profile politicians, where she managed travel, press and security logistics. Julie studied Hospitality Management at the University of Louisville and State University of New York, has her real estate license, and has spent a lifetime enjoying the fruits of the arts in her family.
