Julie’s passion for working with seniors began as a child, in her grandmother’s kitchen and in her grandfather’s greenhouse. She volunteered at a senior center in high school, and her entrepreneurial parents had a large influence on her upbringing. Her mother initiated and executed programs for seniors, replicated by churches city-wide. Her father developed and managed senior living communities in the Southeast.

After a career in technology sales, Julie took her skills to the senior care market where she quickly rose to leadership positions in sales, marketing, operations and programming. Realizing her ambition to make an even greater impact, she completed her Master of Science in Gerontology in 2012 with Honors from the University of Massachusetts Boston. Her thesis on brain nutrition, presented at the American Society on Aging Conference, was the impetus for the launch of the Brain Health and Wellness Center at the 2013 International Alzheimer’s Conference Boston. She enjoys being partner of a certified therapy team through Dog B.O.N.E.S.sm with her dog named Biskit.

Prior to joining Elder Source, Julie co-founded Long Life Matters, serving the financial and care management needs of seniors in Boston. She served on the GeriJoy board of advisors and co-founded Mature Caregivers, a homecare company that provides employment opportunities for older adults. She also has experience developing innovative memory preservation and enhancement programs, teaching classes on communication and dementia care, and integrating digital tools to manage individual care plans while improving the caregiver experience. Julie is a Certified Manager of Care (CMC), Certified Dementia Practitioner® (CDP®), Certified Animal and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (AAT) and certified by the Alzheimer’s Association in Habilitation Training.
