In addition to her professional work, Julie is involved with the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s ONEin3 Council as a team leader for the 2015-2016 Council, and served on the Council from 2013-2014. Julie was named among the inaugural honorees for the 2014 ONEin3 Impact Awards for her work with the Metropolitans.
