A seasoned fundraiser with 20 years working in the trenches at nonprofits across the country and service areas, Julie brings a unique ability to see the big picture and identify successful fundraising strategies. For her dedication and excellence in raising funds for nonprofit organizations in Broward County, Julie received the 2023 Outstanding Fundraising Professional of the Year award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Fort Lauderdale/Broward Chapter

Julie is particularly passionate about efficiency and collaboration throughout the nonprofit sector, always pushing the conversation about how we most effectively leverage our collective resources to solve society's most pressing systemic problems. With Bachelor's and Master's degrees in film, Julie has always approached her nonprofit work with an even balance of art and science. If you're looking to partner with someone who can appreciate your unique needs and tailor a comprehensive strategic plan to advance your mission, she's your woman! Julie lives in Pittsburgh with her husband and two kids - which frankly is a challenge for a Philadelphia sports fan. Go Eagles.
