With over 10 years of experience in student training and development, she believes that training is most effective when we take less time to focus on the 'how' and take more time to focus on the 'why'. Julie’s recent work has centered around peer education, leadership development, and curriculum design. She is currently a facilitator for the LeaderShape Institute and Pi Beta Phi’s Critical Conversations program. She has previously facilitated with the Student Social Justice Training Institute (SJTI), and attended the professional SJTI in 2007.
