About Julia

I am a 6-year US Army veteran (71LP), Desert Storm Era. Cadre at the US Army Airborne School, General's Staff for the US Army Pacific Command member of the 4th Special Operations Support Command, Airborne (4th SOSC). My military career experience was diverse and full of moments that required my representing my post or command to the civilian public, other branches of service and foreign nations.

My years in the service were some of the best of my life. I was able to transition to an exciting civilian career with the help of aspects of my military life that I didn't realize would be so valuable. Now I share my experience to help make the journey for others positive and productive.

I am an experienced arts and entertainment marketing and branding professional with expertise in non-profit, museums, entertainment destinations, performing arts & theatre, technology and retail.

I offer advice and assistance in resume and cover letter writing, interview prep, job search techniques, social media tools and professional networking. For those interested in my specific field, I provide mentorship and professional guidance.
