Initially a volunteer for Audio Journal, Julie joined the staff in 2022. She works part-time from her home in Millbury and assists with audio editing as well as other office-related work that helps Audio Journal run on a day-to-day basis.
Julie was born and raised in southeastern Massachusetts and moved to the Worcester area with her husband in 2005. Julie is an author, avid reader, and loves all things creative.
Previously, Julie worked for over 20 years in Information Technology at Boston Scientific in various role both as an independent contributor and as a manager.
In 2019, Julie took a leap of faith to pursue her writing, creative endeavors, and to focus on service to others – which led her to volunteering here at Audio Journal. Her technical skills and passion for bringing quality content to our listening audience make her a great fit here at Audio Journal.
Ginny worked both in IT and Training in the financial industry (insurance and banking) for 15 years. Her responsibilities included: rolling out computer hardware and software, help desk support, instructional design for computer based training, and leading a multimedia teams to design and create training for internal audiences.
In her spare time she likes to play/train/walk with her dog Maddie, read, paint, and spend time with friends. While she once played the flute and piccolo in a marching band, she no longer plays any musical instruments.
“My personal theme song is “Stars and Stripes Forever”. While John Philip Sousa marches often feature drums and horns, his clever “Stars and Stripes Forever” composition also features the piccolo – with syncopation bits, trills, and a counterpoint solo for the smallest instrument in a marching band. It was totally thrilling to play the part on the piccolo – especially when I got it right!”
