Read below to learn more about this amazing member of our team: ⬇️
♡ Julie is a California native who has lived in Petaluma for almost 30 years. Petaluma’s small-town, close-knit feel made it easy for her to connect to volunteer opportunities in the community, such as Rebuilding Petaluma and Mentor Me. She first got involved with the Fabulous Women when it was still a relatively small, grass-roots organization. She has participated in many Fabulous Woman fundraising and personal enrichment events over the years, also getting her two daughters involved. The Festival of Trees is a personal favorite! She was happily married for almost 30 years; her husband Tom passed away from brain cancer in July 2016. She is a fitness enthusiast and has competed in two Olympic distance triathlons; she teaches indoor cycling classes at a local gym.
♡ Julie currently works part-time for a winery in the Sonoma Valley and loves her job! She worked for Scholastic Book fairs and prior to that she was a teacher in several North Bay area school districts for 10 years. The last two years of her teaching career were as a STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Math) Instructional Coach, helping classroom teachers in grades K-5 deliver hands-on lessons aligned with science, math and language arts standards. Julie began her career in the technology sector and holds a B.S in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management Information Systems.
