After graduating from James Madison University with a degree in Public Policy and Administration and a minor in Sociology, Julia began her pursuit of a career as a nonprofit professional. It was during a summer internship in 2016 with a nonprofit bereavement camp for families, that she found her passion for serving the veteran community. Since then, Julia has searched for more meaningful opportunities to support veterans and their families. Her most recent work as a Fundraising Coordinator, in combination with her undergraduate experience, have provided her with the skills she will utilize as Program Manager for PHWFF.
A Richmond native currently residing in Northern Virginia, Julia finds she is happiest when spending time with her family, throwing pottery, and seeing her favorite musicians perform live.
