- Administrative Assistant
Julie has always had a strong faith since a small child, having spent many of her formative years with her two elderly aunts whose love of Christ and people were examples for her own life. Their belief in welcoming all strangers, as they may be angels, and that the Lord will provide, are mantras that still ring loudly in her soul today. She has had many vocations: waitress, boat builder, food technologist, archivist, engineering, insurance agent, and office administrator. She was born and raised a Kansan, but her heart has always belonged to the ocean, so in 1996 she moved to the Outer Banks of NC, where she was in part able to fulfill her dream of working with sea creatures by volunteering with Pea Island Refuge and NC Aquariums. While living in NC and serving as the Youth Group Leader for Colington UMC,Julie completely committed her life to Christ, allowing Him to guide her steps (she believes this is different from simply serving and loving God and Christ). In 2009 she felt the call to return home to be near her aging parents and assist with her son, Nathan who is schizophrenic. Upon her return she asked God to guide her in finding employment where she could serve Him, and low and behold in the local paper was the ad for the Administrative Assistant for TUMC. Here she is today!
