Prior job that shaped them:

Before working at UK, Julie worked at the HBCU (Historical Black College and University), Kentucky State University (KYSU). Julie’s work at KYSU gave them a unique opportunity to learn from many different underrepresented populations and led them to assist in creating the START (STEM Through Authentic Research and Training) program here at UK. The START program provides near-peer mentorship and coaching to underrepresented high school students in STEM and gives students access to STEM experiential learning opportunities on UK’s campus.

What they enjoy doing outside of work: Julie loves to do anything that involves hanging out with family, especially their spouse and three kids. Currently, their favorite thing to do together is pick a really bad television show and point out all the plot holes!

A goal in life: To write a book.

Fun fact: Julie’s favorite hobby is twofold: one, Julie loves to flip vintage items on eBay, and two, Julie loves to talk about flipping vintage items on eBay!
