Julie accepted Christ in elementary school through an AWANA program at her church and later participated in Word of Life competitions in storytelling and vocals. She has a specialized Associate Degree in legal secretarial studies (yes, it’s an actual thing!) who went from working in the law office to working part-time at her church when her children were young. She loves to type and still takes notes in shorthand. During 27 years of assisting multiple pastors in 3 different churches, she realized that she had found her calling. Her greatest desire is to support and assist pastors in a way that frees them to pursue the ministry that God has called them to.

Julie and her husband, Mike, have three adult children and four grandchildren. After almost two years of living in Central Florida, they returned to SouthCentral Pennsylvania in 2017 and are enjoying being close to family again.
