Get to Know Julia

"Before coming to Tepper, I studied Industrial and Management Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I then moved back to the D.C. area, where I spent the last six years working for a large defense contractor in project engineering and operations program management roles."

"I choose to come to Tepper for the community and the leadership development program. I have been truly amazed at how my diverse set of classmates are willing to bend over backward to help each other, whether that is for recruiting, classes, or just being there for each other. I have also enjoyed the support of the faculty and Accelerate Leadership Center as I work to grow my leadership skills and business acumen."

"When I am not at school, I like watching and playing sports, traveling, flying airplanes, and exploring this underrated city."
