Prior to entering higher education, Julie served as an editor for a national book and magazine publishing company and as a writer and account executive in the Pacific Northwest marketing agency. An interest in the field of international education was sparked at the age of 16 when Julie played viola in an orchestra that traveled throughout Europe, and, then again, during her tenure at Salem College when she was fortunate to work with international students, inspiring her decision to enter the field of international education. Julie earned a BA in English from Pennsylvania State University, State College, and studying MS in Organizational Leadership at Elizabethtown College.
