Outstanding Service Award Recipient
The Department of Biomedical Sciences refers to Julie as the “go-to” person and the central figure for the department. Julie’s love and availability to help people, as well as how she has created a very friendly atmosphere in the department are just some ways she showed her dedication and service.
Julie is always looking for new ways to contribute to the Medical School’s mission. She practiced sustainability by innovatively developing online tools that assist faculty in creating online learning modules that make use of modern pedagogical theory. She also developed online resources for ordering research supplies and created a website to easily store and access graphics, forms, and printing materials for faculty to use in teaching. Julie excels in her ability to manage complex projects simultaneously from helping prepare a multi-million dollar program grant proposal that required cooperation of multiple faculty members, helping prepare examinations for medical school students, and coordinating faculty candidate visits, to helping medical students develop team building skills.
For sharing her unique talents, it gives me great pleasure to present Julie with this Outstanding Service Award.
