Julie holds a Masters in Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary, and she is ordained with the Evangelical Church Alliance and is a board certified professional chaplain. In her work in chaplaincy, as well as working with a mentoring program for college students, she has discovered a love and passion for the power of mentoring relationships.

When she is not running after one of them, she loves to read, walk, garden and connect with friends.
