Julie earned her bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University in 2005 and has a passion for helping people, whether those that are struggling with addiction or those that have dedicated their time and careers to help those navigating the battle of addiction.

Julie’s ability to strengthen the link between people and strategy, as well as manage, motivate, and retain talent is invaluable as First Steps Recovery continues to grow and develop the administrative infrastructure necessary to support the long-term success of its program.

Julie’s responsibilities include (but are not limited to): developing and implementing on-boarding procedures, performance management, employee retention, state and JCAHO auditing and compliance, and employee relations, policies, and strategies.
