Marketing and Communications Manager
With over 25 years of experience in public relations, event planning and operations, a degree in theater allowed Julia the great fortune of a successful career working in the arts. Starting on the wardrobe crew at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, she eventually ended up on the communications and publicity side of numerous organizations including Portland Opera, Broadway Across America, Oregon Ballet Theatre, Cappella Romana, and Cirque du Soleil, where she was the publicist for Cirque’s first appearance in the Northwest, and for LOVE (the Beatles show) in Las Vegas. She has enjoyed a brisk freelance practice with clients that include the Oregon Symphony, Portland Center Stage, and Spectra/Montreal for the Glenn Miller Orchestra. She does own up to a slight deviation off the path to the corporate world of Nike and Nordstrom where she reveled in the company discounts.
