She is a multiple Paul Harris Fellow, a member of the Paul Harris Society, a Major Donor and a member of the Bequest Society.  She joined the Show Me Rotary Council in 2015 and was Chairman of the Presidents’ Elect training committee in 2017.  
Julie was born and raised in Chillicothe, MO.  She continues to reside there with her husband of 34 years, Rolfe. Together they have three grown daughters and four grandchildren. Julie is a CPA and owns her own business.  She and Rolfe also own and operate several residential and commercial rental properties in the Chillicothe area.  Rolfe is also a long time Rotarian and he and Julie have traveled to Jamaica in each of the last four years with the North Kansas City Rotary Club on a medical and dental mission trip.
Julie is active in her community and volunteers with various groups at church, with the Chillicothe Educational Foundation and through the local women’s prison.  At the prison, she is treasurer for PATCH.  Parents and Their Children is a group that brings children to see their mothers at the prison and works with the inmates to help them be better parents when they return home. 
She loves to travel, read, and has been a longtime supporter of MIZZOU football.  She follows the Tigers at home and on the road.  Her favorite trips always include traveling to a Rotary International Convention.  And, of course, she loves spending time with her children and grandchildren.
