Julie is a seasoned developer with over 25 years of experience in the software business primarily as a software developer. She has often been the only woman in the tech department and learned to respond to the call ‘hey guys and Julie’. She’s worked in a variety of settings from start-ups to government. She was the first woman developer at Remedy Corp, a leader in the help desk software space at the time. She currently works at the Federal District Court where she performs a variety of tasks ranging from software development, business analysis, agile project management, and database administration.
A lifelong feminist, she would like to help empower women to perform at their highest capacity and grow in their careers. She enjoys political discussions, reading non-fiction, and listening to jazz (preferably not at the same time). When she’s not writing code, she is often hanging out with her wife and four cats.
