Julie has held many leadership roles in the education and youth sectors and the organisation of major events. A former high school teacher, she was selected to represent Australia on Operation Drake, a youth development venture when she sailed across the Pacific on a tall ship, working on projects to benefit remote communities. Inspired to take on challenges that have impact, Julie has organised international legal conferences around the world and major national events including for Australia’s Bicentennial celebrations and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for Sydney’s Olympics. Her passion for supporting the development of young Australians has led her to be the inaugural Executive Director of the Young Endeavour Youth Scheme, on the Board of Outward Bound Australia, and work with Australian Business and Community Network’s mentoring programs.
