Julie is thrilled to have the opportunity to sail again with Semester at Sea. She first sailed in Spring 2004 in the role of Assistant Director of Student Life, and later went on to work for the Institute for Shipboard Education in Charlottesville, Virginia. Julie is currently a full-time graduate student in the Cultural Studies program at the University of Washington’s Bothell campus and credits much of her SAS experience with leading her on her current path. Julie has an extensive background in Housing and Residential Life at various universities in Southern California including her alma mater, the University of California, Irvine (Zot!). Julie ranks her beloved “Terrible Towel” high on her packing list just after her passport, and hopes to photograph it in as many new locations as possible.
