Plain and simple, Julie is a "rock star'' when it comes to marketing and public relations. She is detail-oriented, hard-working, diligent and industrious. She is smart, passionate about her work and always willing to go the extra mile. Julie is also collaborative, able to seek out partners and creatively find solutions when dollars don't quite stretch far enough. One of her strongest talents is how adept she is with the technical challenges inherent in using online media. Singlehandedly, she saved the Opera House thousands of marketing dollars in areas where many nonprofits are forced to hire media support.

As her supervisor, I found Julie to be a dedicated, hardworking and skilled professional. She possesses the self-motivation and work ethic to thrive independently but she also excels equally at collaboration and teamwork. I was impressed with her ability to balance many competing and urgent priorities with skill and grace. Her attention to detail, excellent communication skills, flexibility, efficiency and creativity were great assets to our small team as was her extensive knowledge of the Marketing and Communications and Fund Development fields. It was a pleasure working with Julie and I give her my wholehearted endorsement.

If you’re like me, when you think back over the years there are only a few employees you’d do anything to hire back. For me, Julie is one of them. Bright with multi-tasking abilities beyond par, she is a calming breeze in every stressful situation – a true professional. She’s unflappable, a problem-solver and someone who is known for following through. Always.

Without a doubt, Julie is one of the most knowledgeable, experienced, highly-skilled and Queen-bee of all things marketing! Her ability to manage and intelligently strategize a plan for marketing while providing me with the assets to get the job done, is always spot on and clearly paves the road for clear objectives. Where ever Julie goes, it is without a doubt that she can master and effectively put the right steps into place for a successful marketing agenda! She is a true gem, hard to find these days, and is a great pleasure to work with!

Julie is a passionate supporter of the arts and her conviction is reflected in the high quality of her work. I saw her plan several major fundraising events for the DRAA. Julie has an unusual grace under pressure--always polished and professional--never leaving a single detail unattended.
Understanding the challenge of garnering support with a very limited budget, I am always impressed with Julie's creativity and her commitment to the organization. I am sure that she would be a valuable asset to any team that needs a highly experienced and friendly representative for their business.
