About Me   About Me
Julie is the Link Up Project Coordinator for the Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS (GYCA), a youth-led global network of over 7,000 young people fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS in over 170 countries worldwide. GYCA empowers young people with the knowledge, skills, resources and opportunities they need to be effective agents of change in their communities.

Julie graduated from The New School with an M.A. in international affairs in May 2012. Her academic interest areas included youth and gender development, methods of effective behavior change intervention, and innovation in sub-Saharan Africa. During her time at The New School, Julie interned at the World Policy Institute and the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs. Before earning her Master’s degree, Julie served as a Peace Corps Volunteer at a small community-based organization in Botswana (2008-2010), where she worked to build local organizational capacity and design and implement HIV/AIDS prevention and youth life skills programs. A northern California native, she graduated from Santa Clara University in 2007 with a B.S. in psychology. Julie currently serves as a volunteer advocate at Beth Israel Medical Center’s Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Intervention Program. She enjoys traveling, hiking, baking, live music, and film.
