Before joining the world of content marketing, Julie began her career in publishing. She accidentally fell in love with publishing and found a deep passion for language and project management.
Julie later became a junior project manager at Pearson, one of the largest educational publishers in downtown Boston, Massachusetts, where she reached the peak of her publishing career. She took on various editorial and production project management roles and projects, working with external sales teams and customers at universities and colleges nationwide to produce over 200 custom projects and titles each year.
Within the same month that Julie began her role at Pearson, she started her own business, J. H. Language Solutions. Through the years, and as the digital marketing and technology industries expanded and clashed, she refined and fine-tuned her creative writing skills. Afterward, she began taking on more content writing and copywriting projects and managing complex digital marketing campaigns for startups small- and medium-sized businesses.
In May 2017, Julie left Pearson to focus on managing and building her business full time. In September 2017, J. H. Language Solutions became Jaguar Media Solutions and Consulting, Inc. Along with a small team, Julie continues to work with clients to this day, providing various levels of project management support, from serving as a dedicated project manager on complex, high-risk projects to consulting with small and startup businesses on workflow management and design and process optimization.
Julie has a Bachelor’s in Modern Languages and a minor in Business Management from Anna Maria College in Paxton, Massachusetts. She also has a Master’s in Project Management from Bryant University in North Smithfield, Rhode Island, an accredited institution recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI). Julie earned certifications in both Traditional and Agile project management methodologies. She is currently working on a certification in Business Process Management (BPM) from Villanova University.
In her “free” time, Julie is a semi-professional aerial gymnast, dancer, and instructor. She loves running, hiking, reading, riding her three-wheel motorcycle, and taking care of her two cats, “Nikki” and “Toto.”
