Executive Recruiter, Faculty

View all staff


With a background in technology recruiting (Heidrick & Struggles) as well as nonprofit executive recruiting (The Bridgespan Group), Julie brought her extensive rolodex and experience to SU to assist with our local and global expansion of SU staff. She transitioned to the Faculty, Content, and Curriculum team where she leads the faculty and speaker recruitment, as well as staffing our monthly colloquia with industry-leading professionals.

Julie is passionate about global economic development and has served several international NGOs for over 10 years. She is currently on the Board of Directors of African Library Project, a literacy project that has established over 2,000 libraries in Anglophone Africa.

Julie holds a Master’s degree in music and still does singing gigs but refuses to show her woodwind skills in public anymore fearing noise ordinance objections. Mornings find Julie on the Willamette River near her home in Portland, OR pulling for Willamette Rowing Club’s competitive crew team.
