After coming to the realization that her first career choice, Monkey Trainer, had limited opportunities, Julie set her course on a career in advertising and marketing. Julie has spent 20+ years at media agencies overseeing the strategy and global operations of brands such as Microsoft, Schwab and Apple. More recently, she has been the Global Media Director and is currently a Director of Marketing Integration at Intel. Julie received her B.S., cum laude, from USC’s Marshall School of Business.
Julie lives with her husband, daughter and son in Redwood City, CA. She has volunteered teaching prospective parents about international adoptions and supporting education in Africa. In her free time, she enjoys cooking for friends, electronic music, traveling and spending time with her family, usually involving kids’ sports. And she still loves monkeys.
