Prior to joining NWEA in 2012, she was a high school language arts and journalism teacher who worked primarily with multilingual learners. Julie is passionate about ensuring that all students can see themselves in their curriculum and assessments. While at NWEA, she has worked with a multicultural advisor to expand the diversity of reading passages in MAP Growth assessments, adding numerous works written by authors of color. Julie currently lives in Portland, Oregon, where she enjoys many outdoor activities but perhaps feels most content when cruising downriver on a standup paddle board.
