Interests & Expertise

------------------------

Julie is responsible for managing the marketing and communications for her department and has been with the College of Health Sciences since 2013.

Before working at UWM, Julie developed an in-depth understanding of marketing and communications through six years of diverse communications experience. Julie worked in the Recruiting, Marketing, and Sustainable Development departments at College of Menominee Nation, at WFRV-TV Green Bay, and the Governors Public Relations Office at the Wisconsin State Capitol. She uses these experiences to lead the current marketing and communications efforts at CHS-Outreach.

In her free time, Julie enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends—preferably outdoors.
