About

When Julie is not out exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest or creating a new dish in the kitchen, she is passionate about helping clients challenge their current process of how things have always been done. She believes that a well-thought-out process, good people, and proper technology are key to allowing a business to scale and flourish.

Julie is a Senior Manager of Implementation and Consulting on the Software Solutions team. In this role, she focuses on system implementation, training, and ongoing support for Sage Intacct. She also provides guidance to both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations to assess their current challenges, and she works collaboratively with internal and external resources to provide solutions.

Julie’s goal is to help move companies from organizational chaos to establishing processes and implementing systems that will help the business grow. Her extensive background in project management allows her to help clients plan for the organizational changes, establish a project plan and timeline to meet their goals, and facilitate the resources and the deliverables to reach their milestones on time.
