Julie moved to Durham, NC from Savannah, GA in January 2018.  She has a Bachelor’s degree in Government from Harvard University, a TCC in Early Childhood Program Administration from Savannah Technical College, and a CDA in Center-based  Infant/Toddler and a CDA in Center-based Preschool. She has worked in the child care field since 2006 and was a teacher for over nine years before transitioning to Director of a center, serving children ages 6 weeks to 3 years old, for over two years.  Julie became interested in The Little School due to our Reggio Emilia inspired methods of developing brain architecture in young children through relationships-based curriculum.

In her spare time, Julie volunteers for organizations that provide assistance to survivors of sexual assault in addition to environmental conservation initiatives.  For fun, she enjoys reading, writing, anything creative, and spending time with her husband. Julie is honored and excited to be a part of The Little School family!
