She has worked in the field of Advancement since 1992, first in annual giving at the Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago, followed by a move to Northwestern's Evanston campus, where she led several initiatives including the school's Parents Fund. After moving to Minneapolis in 1997, she was hired by the Minnesota Medical Foundation at the University of Minnesota where, over a 12-year period, she worked with Medical School alumni and donors in numerous capacities. Her roles there included management of the school's alumni board, the orchestration of special events, and directing fundraising efforts for a host of programs ranging from medical school scholarships to cardiovascular research.  Julie is a graduate of Northwestern University and grew up in nearby Plymouth. She has returned to her hometown where she enjoys spending time with her husband, Scott, and their three young sons, Graham, Miles, and Reid.
