Director of Operations

Having grown up in a small town in New Mexico, the world opened up for Julie through travel and music. As a life-long musician, Julie played flute/piccolo all through college and grad school and has played in a variety of orchestras and ensembles while living in different parts of the country and abroad. She graduated with a BBA, Marketing degree from Texas Tech University and an MS, Social and Applied Economics degree from Wright State University. Julie has been privileged to be a member of the HSO flute section since 1996, has served the orchestra as Liaison to the Board of Directors, and currently is in her third year as Director of Operations.


Julie considers herself a “Willing Adventurer” and is always looking forward to wherever life takes her. Favorite sayings: “It’s all part of the Adventure!” and “You’re never lost...just sightseeing!”
