Biography


Julia brings over 10 years of experience in the nonprofit sector to her role as a capacity building and fund development consultant. As an AmeriCorps Volunteer at a youth agency, an Executive Director of an international development organization and a nonprofit Consultant, Julia has experience in the start-up, maintenance and growth realms, but is most passionate about assessing the Point A–or starting point–of her clients, so that she can effectively move with them in the direction of their Point B–or desired impact zone. Julia has worked with organizations across the nonprofit spectrum, from small, grassroots organizations with budgets well under $100,000 to large, established organizations with multi-million dollar budgets.

Julia worked as a consultant when she first moved to Denver eight years ago. In that role, Julia specialized in monitoring and evaluation design and implementation, grantwriting and grants management, and program development and design. Following these experiences, Julia worked as the Executive Director of Elephant Energy, an international development organization that works to increase access to small-scale renewable energy products in off-grid communities in Namibia and on the Navajo Nation. Operating as a global social enterprise, Julia gained experience in business planning and sales forecasting, as well as in nonprofit management. Finally, having lived, worked and studied in both Ecuador and Costa Rica, Julia adores work related to Latin America and is conversationally fluent in Spanish.

Outside of her work, Julia is the Chair of the Commission for the Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships, an office that works to increase the effectiveness of partnerships between the nonprofit and government sectors. She also loves hiking and running with her pup, Dakota.
