One of Julie’s strengths is maintaining quality throughout every stage of a project—especially during construction. For over 17 years, she’s worked with designers, contractors, officials, stakeholders, departments of transportation, and the Federal Highway Administration. Her job? To collaborate. To help resolve design, construction, schedule, and budget issues.
Most recently she’s been managing construction on two small projects in Virginia. One of them is a streetscape revitalization with sidewalk improvements and landscaping as well as decorative sign posts, signal poles, and street lights. “It’s been rewarding,” she says. “The City is appreciative of our work, and the project has really changed the aesthetic of the area near City Hall.”
When Julie’s at work, she enjoys being part of something that creates or builds. For her, it’s about making a difference in peoples’ lives. “It’s nice to go back, years later, and see my projects being utilized by the public.” When she’s not at work, she relaxes with outdoor hikes, especially in the national and state forests.
